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 John Hickenlooper has pushed an extreme environmental policy, and current U.S. Congressman and gubernatorial candidate Jared Polis said he will take this even farther and regulate Colorado into a 100% renewable energy state. These policies immediately put at risk 233,000 jobs and $31 BILLION annually from Colorado’s economy.
