The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission has amended its rules.

The rules require the Commission to consult with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the Colorado Division of Wildlife when proposed oil and gas activities could affect public health or important wildlife resources.

Before they were amended the rules also allowed drilling agencies to seek a hearing before the Commission to raise their concerns.

The changes take effect July 1.
