I'm not MACAL, but I am from CO and in the energy industry.You are correct. This is the latest attempt to shut down energy extraction in the state. The antis have tried numerous legal and legislative tactics unsuccessfully including a ballot initiative in the last election to increase setbacks to 2500 feet. This would have shut down almost all drilling in the state. The economic impact would have been devastating, but they did not care. They sold it as "limiting drilling near schools and playgrounds", but the actual language of the bill was very different.They will try anything and everything to force others to adhere to their ridiculous agenda.
