Colorado Petroleum Assoc is on Twitter blasting the proposed regulations and stating they are ‘proud’ to join with COGA in opposition. 

CPA proud to join! COGA gathers crowd to fight drilling-setback increase… via @denbizjournal

Many are asking for a 1000 foot setback just for safety reasons of fire, explosions, blowouts, fracking sand and dust,and H2S. This setback is not ONEROUS as it adds 80 feet of additional drilling to a target at 5000 foot depth. The idea of compromise, on items that can NOT be mitigated as currently practiced, can NOT be done at less than 1000 feet. Compromising on safety is not something that should ever be considered as it is the reason that almost every petro-chemical disaster has occurred!
