  • 411 on Prop. 112 — drilling permits skyrocketing

    DENVER – Colorado’s oil and gas drilling permits are skyrocketing.

There’s no doubt that’s, in part, because of Proposition 112. If approved, it would make all new oil and gas development in Colorado be at least 2,500 feet from homes, schools, businesses and more. Right now the setbacks – […]
