Colorado Rising Statement on SB-181 Passing Out of Senate

DENVER — On Wednesday, April 3rd the Colorado Senate passed SB-181 with the House’s amendments. Now it awaits Governor Polis’ signature to become law.

Anne Lee Foster, Communications Director of Colorado Rising, the grassroots, citizen group behind Prop 112 said “Despite some concerning amendments, SB-181 is still a step in the right direction. There were some very obvious loopholes and major concessions granted to industry. While SB-181 does not address all of the concerns and threats associated with industrial fracking activity, it is a desperately needed tipping back of enormously unbalanced scales in favor of people and environment over corporate profits.”

“Rule-making will be critical in protecting Coloradoans and making sure 181 fulfills the new mandate of prioritizing health and safety. Colorado Rising will be there to empower communities and fight for and our environment and public health.”
