COGCC September Meeting – Give Comment (NEW TIME!)
September 25 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm
PLEASE NOTE NEW TIME!!
Join us to keep the pressure on the COGCC and remind commissioners and the oil and gas industry that it is time to enact a clear transition plan away from fossil fuels in our state and to address climate change now. This hearing will be held in Boulder and is happening during the global Climate Strike and Week of Action. We invite you to take action and join us at this hearing along with thousands of others across the globe who will be taking actions on this day.
2019 has ushered in a number of movement milestones, including the passage of SB19-181, a new law stating that Colorado oil and gas policy now must prioritize the protection of public health and safety over oil and gas extraction. However, our work is far from complete.
Please join in offering public comment at the hearing, keeping the pressure on and ensuring that our new law is not only upheld, but also that oil and gas permitting is paused during the new rulemaking process.
