SB18-039 - Continue The Wildfire Matters Review Committee

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the wildfire matters review committee, and, in connection therewith, deferring the date on which the committee is scheduled to repeal and making an appropriation.

Wildfire Matters Review Committee. The wildfire matters review committee (WMRC) is currently scheduled to repeal on July 1, 2018. The bill defers the repeal date to September 1, 2025.

The bill also eliminates obsolete provisions relating to the WMRC's consideration of codifying the wildland and prescribed fire advisory commission, an entity created by executive order. The WMRC discharged its obligation by considering this issue during the 2014 legislative session.

The bill also appropriates $49,125 from the general fund to the legislative department for the 2018-19 state fiscal year for its implementation.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
