Take Action to prevent our catastrophic wildfires and smoke filled summers.

SSB 5996 addresses our escalating annual expenses for wildfires by setting up a dedicated account to fund fire prevention and suppression activities. The substitute bill funds the account with a wildfire surcharge of .52 percent of gross receipts on property and casualty insurers (except medical professional liability business).

For the last five years the incidences and costs of wildfires has escalated and the associated smoke is impacting our health and the economy. Please contact your Senator and Representatives and urge them to support this bill.
