Along with partners, NASF submitted a letter of support to Congressional leaders today urging Congress to implement a solution to fire funding.
A solution should allow access to disaster funding, eliminate the negative impacts of transfers address the increasing costs of suppression over time. The Wildfire Disaster Funding Act (WDFA) (S. 235, H.R. 167) is a bipartisan proposal that achieves these three goals. We urge Congress to incorporate WDFA language in the FY 2016 appropriations or other legislative vehicle to ensure this critical budgetary issue is addressed this year.
