Commissioners to Governor - Comments on Oil & Gas Local Control Bill

The Mesa County Commissioners learned that Governor Hickenlooper is considering taking action relative to proposed oil and gas ballot measures, and that negotiations may be occurring relative to a draft bill for a legislative special session.

In response, the Commissioners prepared a formal comment letter.

“We do not support any legislation that takes rule making away from COGCC. Furthermore, we do not support the imposition of any additional fees on the oil and gas industry.”

COGCC (Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission) is a division of the Colorado Division of Natural Resources.

Steve Acquafresca states: “Our county board supports uniform statewide regulatory standards for the oil and gas industry.”
