Wildfire Funding Act of 2015 Would End Transfers of Cash from Land Management Programs

Yesterday United States Representative Mike Simpson and Oregon Congressman Kurt Shrader introduced the Wildfire Disaster Funding Act of 2015.  The bill is identical to the 2014 version of the Act and would change how the feds budget for wildland fire suppression to eliminate the need for transferring funds from other critical conservation and management programs.
Many of you stakeholders in the West will be keeping an eye on this one!  See the full press release here.
