NASF sends letters to appropriators recognizing reimbursement of non-fire funds

Alongside other leaders of the Fire Suppression Funding Solutions Partner Caucus, NASF sent letters to House and Senate appropriators recognizing their leadership demonstrated through including in the short-term continuing resolution a provision reimbursing the non-fire funds transferred to pay for fire suppression at the USDA Forest Service and Department of the Interior in fiscal year 2013.

The letter also expresses concern that without action from Congress to provide a funding solution, the agencies are likely to face yet another round of disruptive fire transfers if fiscal year 2014 and beyond.N
