The Greeley Tribune on the state Supreme Court’s decision on fracking (May 9):
Last week, the Colorado Supreme Court weighed in on one of Colorado’s most contentious and long-running questions. Do local governments have the right to ban oil and gas drilling?
Anyone who’s spent much time in Greeley could have predicted the answer. No, the court said, communities such as Fort Collins and Longmont cannot ban or indefinitely delay drilling and hydraulic fracturing.
