DENVER - The Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) on Aug. 7 voted unanimously to withdraw its lawsuit against the City of Longmont, Colo., challenging the city's ordinance setting tough restrictions on hydraulic fracturing within the city's limits. The decision to drop the lawsuit came at the request of Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, who is forming a task force to address fracking issues in the state (Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, et al. v. City of Longmont, Colo., et al., No. 2012cv702, Colo. Dist., Boulder Co.).
