"Plan C" for Colorado in battle over local control of fracking

NPR has the story...

From the lede:

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper has announced a last-minute compromise to avert a costly political battle over oil and gas drilling. As Dan Boyce of Inside Energy reports, the deal is meant to find a solution to disputes related to fracking — but it also serves the political interests of Colorado Democrats.

The story doesn't mention last month's Colorado district court ruling finding that the city of Longmont's ban on hydraulic fracturing and the storage and disposal of hydraulic fracturing waste in the city was invalid., discussed previously on the blog here.
