27079196 story Fracking Disclosure Rules Approved In CO 279 Posted by Unknown Lamer on Wednesday December 14, 2011 @11:15AM from the quench-your-thirst dept. ExE122 writes "Colorado has approved new measures taking a tough stance on the disclosure of chemicals used in fracking. The new law is 'requiring companies to disclose the concentrations of chemicals in addition to the chemicals themselves.' Fracking is a controversial method of natural gas extraction that raises concerns about health and safety issues to surrounding communities. This measure is said to be tougher than similar measures passed in Texas earlier this year."
