RIFLE, Colo. (AP) - A group studying land disputes over hydraulic fracturing in Colorado is meeting in Garfield County.

The task force appointed by Gov. John Hickenlooper will meet in Rifle at the Farm Fresh Cafe on Wednesday and Thursday.

The panel was part of a deal brokered by Hickenlooper to get groups to drop dueling ballot measures that either opposed or supported fracking this year.

Its members must report recommendations and findings to the governor by the end of February.
