State officials are recommending pushing back adoption of some proposed oil and gas rules intended to protect wildlife to 2010.

Last week, thousands attended a meeting in Grand Junction on the proposed new rules.

Dave Neslin of the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission says the delay would apply only to companies that consult with state wildlife officials or submit comprehensive development plans.
