La Veta, Colorado and SWEPI

Grassroots People Power is vital* to the effort of protecting the Town of La Veta and Huerfano County from destructive natural gas development and fracking.  In approving Shell's drilling permit without adequate safeguards
for our air, water and safety, the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) and elected County Commissioners have shunned the concerns of hundreds of affected constituents.  On July 8th, the *Citizens
for Huerfano County filed a complaint for judicial review against the COGCC and Shell Western Exploration & Production, LP.* to ensure the public receives a fair and proper hearing, consultation and review, as required by law.
