Larimer County Judge Overturns Fort Collins Fracking Moratorium [VIDEO]

The five-year moratorium on hydraulic fracturing within Fort Collins city limits was passed by voters back in November; but yesterday, a judge said otherwise.

Ultimately, the court declared that the five-year halt to new development violated the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Act, initially passed in 1951, which declares that oil and gas activity in Colorado is above all a state priority.
