PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT WITHOUT KILLING OIL & GAS
A healthy environment and access to affordable, efficient energy sources are not mutually exclusive. The quality of life that Coloradans enjoy — and that attracts millions of visitors each year — depends on a healthy environment, and it’s the citizens of the state that are its best stewards. In fact, Colorado has some of the strictest oil and natural gas regulations in the nation. Governor Polis and the Democrat-led state legislature ignored the voice of Coloradans who voted down additional oil & gas regulations in 2018, and passed more sweeping regulations during the 2019 legislative session. New oil & gas rules are expected to drastically impact energy development in Colorado and the state’s economy.
