Demand stronger protections against oil and gas emissions

Target: Colorado’s Air Quality Control Commission

Action: Attend the public hearing on Dec. 10. Let the AQCC know that all Coloradoans deserve to benefit from stronger air pollution protections.

In April 2018, Colorado’s Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) began a two-year review process to consider whether it should expand current air pollution standards implemented on the Front Range across the entire state.

The AQCC has hosted a series of public meetings across Colorado throughout this process, an effort which has been bolstered by the passage of SB19-181 in the State Legislature earlier this year. The agency is expected to issue its findings and new regulatory rules in early 2020.

Stronger regulations could significantly improve our air quality and health, as well as combat climate change – BUT WE NEED YOU to make your voice heard. The AQCC will hear verbal testimony at a hearing in Rifle on December 10th. Please attend the meeting and tell Colorado regulators that we all deserve strong protections from oil and gas emissions.

DATE: December 10, 2019
TIME: 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
PLACE: Rifle City Hall – City Council Chambers, 202 Railroad Avenue
Rifle, CO 81650
