Proposition 112 would effectively end responsible natural gas and oil development in Colorado. It would kill jobs. It would shrink our state’s economy. It would significantly reduce critical revenue we need for roads, schools, and public safety. Let’s work together to defeat this misguided proposition.

VOTE NO ON PROP 112

Colorado energy development—and the jobs across Colorado supported by it—are on the line this election. Proposition 112 is so extreme that it has brought both Republican Walker Stapleton and Democrat Jared Polis together to oppose it. This isn’t a partisan issue – Coloradans from across the political spectrum know that Proposition 112 is bad for our state.


 

PROPOSITION 112 PUTS COLORADO’S ECONOMY AT RISK

The goal of those backing Proposition 112 is to shut down responsible energy development in Colorado. They try to hide their intentions by saying the proposition is just about expanding setbacks. What they fail to tell you is that if the 2,500-foot setback proposed by Proposition 112 is put in place, it will put many energy-rich areas of the state off-limits to natural gas and oil production. The 2,500-foot setback that Proposition 112 would impose is a political ploy to shut down natural gas and oil production in our state.

What’s at stake? A study by the REMI Partnership found that Proposition 112 could:

  • Cause the loss of up to 43,000 jobs in the first year and up to 147,800 jobs over the next twelve years
  • Reduce the state’s economy by up to $6 billion in the first year and up to $26 billion a year by 2030
  • Lead to a reduction of $258 million in tax revenue in the first year and $1.061 billion a year by 2030

Not only will passage of Proposition 112 kill jobs, reduce economic activity, and lower tax revenue, it will also lead to higher energy prices. It is a bad deal for every Coloradan. That is why both Walker Stapleton and Jared Polis oppose it. They don’t agree on much, but they do agree that our state will suffer if Proposition 112 becomes law.
