“We have the opportunity here to make some changes that will improve the health of the generations after us,” said Sharon Montes, a physician for 30 years and a representative of Colorado Physicians for Social Responsibility. She wants to see gas lines prohibited in the construction of new homes in Denver.

She said prohibiting gas lines would save residents money long-term because electric power is cheaper than gas. But it also would lower healthcare costs due to asthma and reduced lung function, Montes said.
