LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) A ballot initiative for a two-year hydraulic fracturing moratorium in Loveland has been certified by City Clerk Terry Andrews.

The decision means a ballot petition by the citizens' group Protect Our Loveland satisfied requirements in the city's initiative process go before the city council for adoption or referral to city voters.

According to the Loveland Reporter-Herald, the petitions seek a measure on Loveland's Nov. 5 ballot, asking whether to enact a two-year moratorium on hydraulic fracturing while effects on human health and property values are studied.
