Oil and gas group fights bans of natural gas hookups in Colorado


An advocacy group funded by some of Colorado’s largest oil and gas producers is calling for a statewide ballot initiative to stop cities and counties from banning natural gas hookups in new buildings.

Lawyers working on Protect Colorado’s behalf submitted draft language for the potential 2024 ballot measure to state officials on Aug. 25. Funding is coming from Chevron, Occidental Petroleum and other oil and gas companies.
