One-Minute Brief on Longmont's Fracking Ban

well site.jpg

Karen Antonacci with the Times-Call reports that the Longmont fracking ban is set to go before Colorado's top court, after the issue worked its way up through the court system following a series of legal battles waged by the cities of Longmont and Fort Collins against the oil and gas industry.

Here's your one-minute brief:

  • Longmont and Fort Collins argue that local government has the power to limit fracking within city limits.
  • The Colorado Oil and Gas Association argues that Longmont and Fort Collins are overstepping their authority, and that to allow such bans would "create a patchwork of frackable and unfrackable areas."

Longmont Mayor Dennis Coombs weighs in:

"I think the oil and gas regs protect 90 percent of the city, even if this gets knocked down by the supreme court."

This is a prime example of litigation involving public entities.
