DENVER (AP) — A Colorado task force on oil and gas drilling is trying to find agreement on proposals to resolve disputes over local control and landowner rights.

The 21-member panel meets again Tuesday as it whittles down a list of 56 suggestions.

Gov. John Hickenlooper formed the task force last year and set a Feb. 27 deadline for its recommendations. The panel hasn't taken any final votes.

The task force is made up of oil and gas industry representatives, local government officials and civic leaders. With the deadline looming, they have wrestled with whether to offer specific recommendations or suggest broad areas the Legislature and regulators should focus on.

Hickenlooper formed the task force last year to head off a battle among dueling ballot proposals on hydraulic fracturing.
