Increased fines makes good sense, CO’s are some of the lowest and haven’t been updated since the 1950s.  Increasing inspectors is a good idea as well, and certainly should work in the interest of responsible companies doing their jobs with proper care.  I am unsure where a guarantee of ‘certainty’ was ever part of a Free Market system, or how having clear specific regulations decreases that.  In any case, whatever does exist in the ‘already uncertain’ market is not affected oil and gas development in Colorado, which is at record levels even under the ‘new’ rules from 2008, through which we also heard endless tales of Chicken Little industry demise.

If they are going to cut energy industry representatives from COGCC, they must also cut anyone who has any ties to environmentalist organizations. To be fair, you can’t have special interests from either side.
