Colorado Senate Passes Oil and Gas Bill SB 181

On April 3, 2019, the Colorado State Senate passed Senate Bill 181, historic legislation focused on the oil and gas industry that elevates public health, safety, and environmental considerations in agency decision-making, increases local control, and changes requirements for drilling and operating.

On our call on April 10, 2019, Kirkland & Ellis partner Jon Kidwell and of counsel Ali Zaidi led an interactive discussion on how the legislation is expected to impact companies operating in Colorado.
