Font ResizeProposed statewide ballot measure would give Colo. (Jeremy Papasso / Daily Camera)Draft of language for proposed ballot measure"As all political power is vested in and derived from the people, and as all government of right originates from the people, the people have an inherent and inalienable right to local self government, including in each county, city, town, and any other municipal subdivision or other local community within the State. That right shall include, without limitation: (a) the power to enact local laws recognizing the fundamental rights of people, communities, and the natural environment, and securing those rights using prohibitions and other means; (b) the power to enact local laws for the protection of the health, safety, and welfare of people, their communities, and the natural environment; and (c) the power to enact local laws establishing, defining, altering, or eliminating the rights, powers, and duties of for profit business entities, operating or seeking to operate in the community, to prevent such rights and powers from usurping or otherwise conflicting with the fundamental rights of people, their communities, and the natural environment."A movement is under way to put a ballot measure before Colorado voters in November that would give local governments across the state the power to protect the health and safety of residents by banning or restricting oil and gas drilling and other industrial activities now permitted by state law.The effort, which would be an amendment to the state constitution known as the "Right to Local Self Government Act," is being pushed by the nascent Colorado Community Rights Network.Community activist and Lafayette resident Cliff Willmeng said the group is planning to turn in final language for a ballot measure to the state in the next week or so.That would be followed by a statewide signature collection campaign 86,105 valid signatures would need to be presented to the Colorado Secretary of State's Office to qualify the measure for the November ballot. If it passes, the act would be the first effort of its type in the country to be enacted on a statewide level, said Willmeng, who successfully led the charge Adidas Ace 17.4 Fg

in Lafayette to ban any new oil and gas drilling there."The measure would address any type of corporate project that a local community would deem to Puma Evopower Turf be a threat," he said. "That could include hydraulic fracturing (or fracking), but would not be limited to it."'Radical' measure would harm stateOther activities over which residents should be able to exercise control might include the planting of genetically modified crops, cyanide use in gold mining and the construction of dams, he said.Willmeng said the intent of the proposed act would be to ensure that state law and corporate interests don't trump local law when it comes to making decisions about what's best for the health and wellbeing of a community.He expects that there will be strong legal challenges to the measure, which would give local communities the power to eliminate the "rights, powers and duties of for profit business entities" if they usurp or conflict with the "fundamental rights of people, their communities and the natural environment.""The Colorado Oil and Gas Association cannot allow this to be popularly decided upon and will never defer to a ballot measure on their industry," Willmeng said.Doug Flanders, director of policy and external affairs for the association, said he hadn't seen the full language of the proposed measure but said it appeared to be more of the same from those opposed to energy extraction at any cost."These radical measures will have implications beyond oil and gas development and energize Coloradans who support responsible and affordable energy development against such actions," he said. "We anticipate community and civic leaders will continue to communicate with citizens about the loss of economic vitality, tax revenues, and the other negative impacts that communities will face if industries are banned in Colorado."Bans have invited lawsuitsThe idea for a statewide ballot measure, Willmeng said, stems from the burgeoning movement by communities along the Front Range including Boulder, Lafayette, Longmont and Fort Collins to place restrictions on fracking within their borders. Proponents of the bans argue that allowing such industrial activity so close to where people live poses a health hazard.A five year fracking ban narrowly passed by voters in Broomfield in November is being challenged in court and awaits a ruling from Puma Evopower 4.3 Tricks Fg

No rulings have yet been issued in either case.Proponents of keeping oil and gas regulation a matter of state concern often point to the landmark 1992 case of Voss v. Lundvall Bros., in which the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that Greeley's land use ordinances did not permit the city to halt the drilling of gas, oil or hydrocarbon wells within its borders.The court held that in instances where municipal and state law conflicts, state Adidas Ace 16 Purecontrol Silver
