Subject: Proposed 2022-23 Wildfire Resilience Package

Letter excerpt:

On behalf of the California Forest Watershed Alliance (CAFWA), we are writing to offer our strong support for the Wildfire Resilience Package proposed by the Senate, which includes $6.6 billion in total investments over a five-year period. While we applaud the leadership of the Governor and the Legislature for adopting last year’s historic $1.5 billion in fire prevention and forest resiliency package and appreciate the Governor for proposing a new $1.2 billion investment over two years, we believe the Senate proposal better demonstrates the appropriate level of urgency necessary to address the myriad of challenges facing California’s forests, including the crisis of megafires.
