A MESSAGE FROM GAIL KLAPPER
MEMBER/DIRECTOR 

We are very privileged to live in Colorado and members of the Colorado Forum care deeply about the future of our State.  The Colorado Forum was formed in 1978 with a diverse membership of business and civic leaders who work to achieve good public policy results for Colorado. The Forum has a long history of positive engagement on issues of importance to the State and because the Forum has no term limits, our consistency of purpose allows us to address issues for as long as it takes to make important change happen. More >

ENERGY

Our Perspective

The Forum believes that Colorado should pursue a balanced energy policy and exercise leadership in energy conservation, energy efficiency, and the development of alternative energy technologies.  We need to continue to pursue drilling and production opportunities in oil and gas while safeguarding the natural environment and the health and safety of local communities.

Our Work

The Forum has been actively involved in understanding the controversy related to drilling and fracking for oil and gas as well as the jurisdictional disputes between state and local entities in the regulation of these activities.  We have participated in efforts to encourage compromise among vested parties.  We do not support using constitutional amendments through the initiative process to accomplish regulatory goals.
