Colorado environmentalists want ban on oil and gas drilling by 2030



Climate activists who want Colorado to ban all new oil and gas drilling in the next six years recently rallied at the state capitol, urging support for a bill in the state legislature.

Senate Bill 24-159 would require Colorado oil and gas regulators to stop issuing new drilling permits by Jan. 1, 2030.

“Enough is enough,” state Sen. Sonya Jaquez Lewis, a Lafayette Democrat, said at a press conference alongside climate activists at the Capitol on Friday reported Colorado Newsline.
