Statesman fire series cont.

Statesman reporters Druzin and Barker continue to make a case for letting more fires burn. It’s a strong series on fire… Maybe Sunday will bring some answers: What’s the hold up in Congress on fire fighting policy? Today: how much it costs to fight fires (a ton) vs. how much benefit (little). “Suppression spending has jumped by a factor of more than six in just a decade, while community assistance spending has dropped by a third since 2001.” Libertarian enviro guy: “They’re definitely going in the wrong direction by providing more funds for suppression.” Statesman.
