Colorado sportsman speaking out about fracking

DENVER (AP) - Colorado sportsmen are backing proposed federal rules of public disclosure of fluids used in oil and gas drilling.

Sportsmen for Responsible Energy Development is calling on the Bureau of Land Management to make sure water, fish and wildlife are protected when oil and gas wells are developed on public lands.

The proposed federal rules would require public disclosure of the chemicals in fracking fluids used in drilling.

Companies contend the fluids are proprietary and under the rules they would have to explain why the information should be kept from the public.
