Colorado Petroleum Council responds to Senate Bill 181 being signed into law

4/16/2019

DENVER -- Governor Jared Polis signed Senate Bill 181 into law. Governor Polis’ signature follows the measure’s passage through the Colorado legislature on April 3, 2019. Colorado Petroleum Council spokesman Ben Marter released the following statement:

“Governor Polis’ signature makes Senate Bill 181 law, which fundamentally alters the natural gas and oil industry’s future in the State of Colorado. From the introduction of the measure early last month, our industry vigorously opposed the policy and the process. Senate Bill 181 remains a threat to one of the foundations of Colorado’s economy.

“We are appreciative that legislative leaders heard our concerns and worked with us to begin to address them. Colorado’s energy future is too important to be wielded as a partisan weapon, and all Coloradans deserve to know the consequences of this bill, both intended and unintended.

“While Senate Bill 181 remains deeply flawed, Governor Polis and state officials have pledged to work with industry to create a reasonable regulatory framework that works for all Coloradans, and we hope that process begins quickly.”
