Yet another Coloradan warns against the ramifications of Proposition 112 in The Pueblo Chieftain:
You may wonder why the owner of a crane and trucking company would be so concerned about a ballot proposal that relates to setbacks in the oil and gas industry. The simple fact is that the ramifications of Proposition 112 go well beyond those companies, businesses and employees who directly work in or for the oil and gas industry. The ripple effect of passing this measure would be felt by every business and resident of our state.
In the case of my company, which is one of Colorado’s oldest, our business primarily is transporting specialized loads and providing cranes in support of the construction and building industry. While I’m not directly in the oil and gas industry, I clearly appreciate the value of the energy industry to our state and local economies.
