Denver (AP) State regulators are heading toward the final stretch of work on new rules for the booming oil and gas industry.

The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission meets Monday and Tuesday to consider ways to protect the state's wildlife and manage drilling waste pits.

The panel has given preliminary approval to dozens of new regulations since August.

Commissioners are expected to take final votes next month on the state's most comprehensive rewrite of rules for the industry since drilling rates started breaking records.
