Annotation: This Article addresses how the fracking boom uniquely challenges local governments, local governments’ regulatory authority under Colorado law, and how they can approach regulation in a manner most likely to survive judicial review.It emphasizes fracking’s socioeconomic impacts, which have been largely overlooked by other legal scholarship, yet constitute the strongest ground for local government regulation.
