(Drilling company plans 15X the number of wells for Roan Plateau than the Bush administration considered in its ‘environmental’ study. – promoted by ClubTwitty)
Yesterday morning on AM760, we talked to Mike Freeman of Earthjustice and Elise Jones of the Colorado Environmental Coalition about a major gas company’s stealth attempts to open up to 3,200 wells on the Roan Plateau – a far higher number than the Bush Bureau of Land Management used in its estimates justifying its support for drilling there. Freeman and Jones are members of two of the groups pushing a lawsuit to halt the plan. For background on the issue, check out this Grand Junction Sentinel report.
We also talked to Melanie Asmar about her in-depth Westword cover story on major cuts to benefits that disabled adults receive through Colorado’s Medicaid program.

Tomorrow (Friday), we’ll check in with Mason Tvert of Colorado SAFER on a potential new plan to reduce marijuana fines in Denver to just $1. Tune in between 7am-10am on your radio dial or at www.am760.net.
