Polis signs new law mandating disclosure of fracking chemicals

The Denver Gazette: Gov. Jared Polis Thursday signed legislation that requires manufacturers and users of hydraulic fracking chemicals to disclose to the state each chemical in their products.

The new law mandates that the list of ingredients be made available on a publicly accessible website, which the Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission is tasked with developing.

Under House Bill 22-1348, the required information includes the trade name of the chemical product, a list of the names of each chemical in the product, the estimated amount of each chemical, and a description of the intended purpose of each chemical in the formulation.
