Colorado activists set their sights on a ballot measure to limit drilling

Previous attempts have been blocked and current regulations disappoint
Protesters gather outside the Colorado Supreme Court building in December to protest fracking before hearings on local communities’ right to ban fracking. The oil and gas industry sued to overturn measures passed by the Front Range communities of Longmont and Fort Collins, contending that the local governments have no power to regulate the industry, or control the location and practices of any oil and gas activities in their borders. Meanwhile, activists are pursuing ballot measures.
