Colorado Supreme Court Rules Against Municipal Laws Limiting Fracking

Colorado Supreme Court Rules Against Municipal Laws Limiting FrackingThe Colorado Supreme Court ruled today against two cities’ attempts to limit fracking, saying the legislation passed by the cities of Longmont and Fort Collins are “invalid and unenforceable” because they conflict with existing state laws. In 2012, voters in the city of Longmont passed a ban on fracking, while in November 2013, Fort Collins voters passed a five-year moratorium on fracking to give the city time to study health and safety impacts of the process, according to court documents.
