"Colorado Delays Fracking Disclosure Decision"

"DENVER -- Colorado regulators decided Monday night to wait a week before they start deliberating a proposal to require oil and gas companies to publicly disclose what chemicals they use in hydraulic fracturing."

"The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission made the decision after hearing about 11 hours of opinions on the proposal from industry officials, conservation groups, residents, local government leaders and water utilities who overflowed a meeting room Monday.

All parties generally supported the commission's efforts but disagreed on the details, including protection for trade secrets and how quickly the information should be disclosed."

The Associated Press had the story December 5, 2011.
