Two anti-fracking ballot initiatives that were pushed by a group calling itself “Coloradans Resisting Extreme Energy Development” have failed to make the November ballot, the only two initiatives that failed to qualify of the nine initiatives submitted to the Secretary of State for certification. The Secretary of State’s office said that, in a random sample of signatures submitted for the initiatives, it found several potentially forged signature lines. It sent the questionable signatures to the state attorney general’s office for further inquiry. Initiative 75 would have enabled localities to ban fracking, and Initiative 78 would have increased the setback requirement for new wells. (See our previous coverage of Initiative 78 here.)
