04/03/2013 House Second Reading Laid Over Daily
Notes from Rick Blotter: Two ECOGIG members attended the House Committee hearing about HB-13-1269. It would change the COGCC mission statement to primarily protect citizen's health, safety and welfare rather than, as now, help the industry to promote drilling. It passed the committee. We met Tim Dore, our State Representative, on Saturday and pleaded for help supporting this Bill. Please write letters to him requesting his support. tim.dore.house@state.co.us
