Colorado Rising Action - What They’re Saying About Prop 112

What They’re Saying About Prop 112

 

“With such a ban would come an exodous of oil and gas companies from the state, the high-paying jobs they create directly and indirectly, and the taxes they pay to state and local governments.” – Denver Post

“without hesitation, we can say that Proposition 112 is not the best way to address those reasonable concerns. It is an overreaction and we hope Coloradans reject it.” – Denver Post

“But the one-size-fits-all approach to setbacks — 2,500 feet regardless of circumstances and community values — is not appropriate for Colorado.” – The Coloradoan

“Increasing an arbitrary, universal setback would punish an industry that carries a great deal of public risk, but it wouldn’t ensure everyone living or working near a drilling site would be any safer than they are now.” – Aurora Sentinel
