Lawmakers at the State Capitol are considering about 100 new rules governing the state's oil and gas industry.

The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission drafted the rules after meetings across the state to get recommendations from local residents.

The new rules will be reviewed by the legislature's committee on legal services and must be approved by lawmakers before they can take effect.

    Small businesses in Western Colorado are directly impacted by the health of the larger businesses. Imposing these regulations on companies that are already struggling is very anti-productive and directly reflects the current administration in Colorado attempt to please the current administration in Washington D.C. The policies being initiated out of Denver and being forced on us definitely go against the feelings of the majority in Mesa and Garfield Countys. For example. We vote a representive out of office and the result is he becomes secretary of state. We have been gerremanded into a congressional district with Pueblo which has very little in common with Western Colorado. Vote no to more regulation. The time has come for serious consideration for Colorado to be divided into two states. Colorado and Western Colorado.
