In more election news, Colorado voters will decide on a ballot measure that could restrict where new oil and gas wells can be located. Proposition 112 would bar drilling sites closer than about a half-mile from buildings and “vulnerable areas” like parks and waterways. Another Colorado measure backed by the fossil fuel industry, Amendment 74, would make it easier for property owners to sue for compensation if their property values are diminished by government regulation. Critics say Amendment 74 would force taxpayers to pay companies not to frack for oil and gas.
