DENVER (AP) The oil and gas industry and environmental critics are sounding off about Colorado's proposed air-quality standards for drillers.
The Colorado Air Quality Control Commission is meeting Thursday to discuss the draft rules on emissions from the oil and gas industry and hear from the public. The changes include more frequent monitoring for leaks and the nation's first statewide standard for methane emissions from oil and gas producers.
Gov. John Hickenlooper announced the proposed rules Monday. The monitoring has an estimated price tag to the industry of $30 million.
