Jeff Robbins, the new director of the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, talks with Marshall Zelinger of 9News.

The immediate impact of the oil and gas reform package passed by the legislature is already being felt and the governor hasn't even signed the bill into law yet.

Senate Bill 181 passed its last vote on Wednesday morning, when the Senate voted 19-16 to approve changes made by the House. All Democrats voted in favor, all Republicans were opposed.

Democratic Gov. Jared Polis plans to sign the bill into law.

Even before he signs it though, the new director of Colorado's Oil and Gas Conservation Commission has delayed the commission's next hearing.

"We needed to delay the April hearing for a few weeks because we need to reconstitute the commission so that we have a commission that's in line with 181," said Director Jeff Robbins.
