Colorado voters reject controversial oil and gas measure Proposition 112
DENVER -- Colorado voters have rejected a proposal that would have tightly restricted where new oil and gas wells could be drilled statewide. Proposition 112 would have required that new wells be at least 2,500 feet from occupied buildings and "vulnerable areas" such as parks, creeks and irrigation canals. It also would have allowed local governments to require even bigger buffer zones.
