Governor Vetoes Energy Independence

Environment Colorado

It is a shame the governor has put the interests of big oil over those of Colorado consumers and our environment. It seems we will have to wait for a new governor to make progress toward energy independence. With rising gas prices and our increasing reliance on volatile foreign oil, Colorado needs to take steps toward securing its own energy future.

SB06-138 was a step toward a secure energy future and would have boosted development of renewable fuels, improved our rural economies, and reduced global warming pollution.
