John Hickenlooper's Fracking Panel Snubs the Fractivists

Earlier this week, when Governor John Hickenlooper announced the names of the nineteen people selected for a special oil and gas task force intended to address fracking-related land use and health issues across the state, he boasted of the group's "balanced and informed representation." It was as if he was introducing one of those ethnically diverse platoons from old War War II movies: the Italian from the Bronx, the Polish kid from Chicago, the hillbilly from Georgia, the farm boy from Ohio, the Navajo scout, the cigar-chomping noncom from Anytown, USA.

House, Senate debate measures going nowhere

Less than two months before pivotal congressional elections, Republicans were set Thursday to muscle legislation through the House that would let insurers continue selling health coverage that falls short of standards required by President Barack Obama's health care law. The measure was sure to pass but then die in the Democratic-run Senate, and the White House promised an Obama veto in any event.

Reaction from Colorado delegation to President Obama's ISIS speech

While agreeing that something needed to be done, the members of Colorado's Congressional delegation who reacted to President Barack Obama's plan to combat ISIS did not offer their blanket approval.

Ed Perlmutter was perhaps the most gung-ho about the initiative, saying, "The President's response to the actions of the terrorists and murderers who call themselves the "Islamic State" was strong and direct."
