Sen. Michael Bennet Drafts Thompson Divide Protection Bill

August 9, 2012
U.S. Senator Michael Bennet has written draft legislation to permanently protect the Thompson Divide area from oil and gas extraction. Recently, energy company SG Interests took steps toward drilling on leases in the area and the Thompson Divide Coalition welcomes Bennett's efforts. Energy trade groups, however, have written a letter opposing the measure.

The bill is open for public comment and is available by clicking here.
