DENVER (AP) - Groups representing Colorado's oil and gas industry, farmers, ranchers and homebuilders are trying to block people who live near drilling sites from testifying at state rulemaking hearings next week.The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission is holding the hearings starting Monday on new proposed drilling rules. Several Coloradans who live near rigs have submitted written testimony outlining their health problems, with the residents and their supporters saying they have a right to be heard. But the Colorado Oil & Gas Association and others say some of the testimony should be tossed because they represent non-expert medical opinions or hearsay. Colorado Department of Natural Resources spokesman Todd Hartman tells The Daily Sentinel the commission will likely decide Monday whether to block the residents' testimony.
