Colorado Oil and Gas Bill Stalls, Could Have Ripple Effect on Several Races

In the face of industry resistance, Democratic Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is expected to cancel a special legislative session Wednesday because of lack of support for a compromise measure on oil and gas drilling, according to FOX31 Denver.

The American Petroleum Institute urged members to oppose the measure, which would increase the distance wells could be placed near homes, the Denver Business Journal reports.

Some oil companies had welcomed the bill as a compromise to avoid more stringent state constitutional ballot initiatives in November, led by Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., who is campaigning to be appointed the next chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, but API urged members to stand their ground.

A protracted battle over the initiatives could be tough for Hickenlooper, who is in a tight race for reelection, and for Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., whose campaign against Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., could factor into the Senate control, as Roll Call reports.

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
