CO Gov. Quits Attempts at Oil and Gas Legislative Compromise

The Denver Post reports that "Gov. John Hickenlooper said Wednesday that he was giving up on his effort to craft a compromise bill on local control of oil and gas drilling and that there would be no special legislative session."  

"'Over the past several months, we have worked with a bipartisan coalition to explore a legislative compromise that would avoid a series of expensive and divisive ballot initiatives,' Hickenlooper said in a statement."  

"'Despite our best efforts and those of other willing partners, we have not been able to secure the broader stakeholder support necessary to pass bipartisan legislation in a special session,' the governor said."
