Governor and Legislature Heed Assemblyman Dahle’s Call for Wildfire Conference Committee

Thursday, July 5th, 2018

On July 2nd, Governor Jerry Brown and California’s legislative leaders agreed to Assembly Republican Leader Brian Dahle’s request for a joint conference committee to address California’s wildfire crisis. The committee will hear Senate Bill 901, which legislators will amend to ensure the bill prepares the state to deal with the increasingly devastating wildfires throughout California.

“There’s a lot at stake for California and we need to get this right,” said Dahle. “In my district, where thousands of people are at risk of wildfires, we need immediate action to keep them safe and keep insurance affordable. By moving these negotiations to a public forum, we can develop a responsible plan that will protect Californians from future wildfires, provide stability to the marketplace and protect consumers.”

Last year, California wildfires killed 43 people and damaged more than 10,000 structures. The Tubbs Fire that hit Santa Rosa was the most destructive fire on record, destroying or damaging more than 5,600 homes and killing 22 people.

The joint conference committee will focus on the issues of wildfire prevention and safety, insurance liability, and utility accountability.

Assembly Republican Leader Brian Dahle serves the 1st district in the California Legislature, which includes Lassen County along with all or parts of Butte, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra and Siskiyou counties.
