Vilsack and Salazar on new FLAME funds

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar applauded the passage of legislation creating the FLAME Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund last week. "Creation of the Wildfire Suppression Reserve Fund enables safe and effective management of wildland fires without pulling resources away from other environmental priorities, such as clean, abundant water and safe, healthy communities," said Vilsack.
