Additional legislation to deal with hydraulic fracturing and oil and gas regulations is unlikely in the final weeks of the state’s annual legislative session. A task force convened by Governor Hickenlooper to examine the issue is not recommending new laws.

KUNC’s State Capitol reporter Bente Birkeland has more.

Bente Birkeland has been reporting on state legislative issues for KUNC and Rocky Mountain Community Radio since 2006. Originally, from Minnesota, Bente likes to hike and ski in her spare time. She keeps track of state politics throughout the year but is especially busy during the annual legislative session from January through early May.
