urban versus rural differences may lead to new state



GREELEY, Colo. (CBS4) – Several Colorado counties that strongly oppose increased regulation of the oil and gas industry say they want to form their own state.

They are planning on calling it North Colorado or Northern Colorado.

The counties are frustrated with the new agricultural and energy bills that have recently been signed into law.

“We really feel in northern and northeastern Colorado that we are ignored — citizens’ concerns are ignored, and we truly feel disenfranchised,” Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway told CBS4.
