Assembly Republican Wildfire Working Group Hosts its Own Wildfire Forum After Oversight Hearing Canceled

SACRAMENTO – Frustrated with the Democratic leadership’s cancellation and indefinite postponement of the Wildfire Prevention and Forest Resiliency hearing originally scheduled for Aug. 18, the Assembly Republican Wildfire Working Group hosted its own informational forum to discuss the barriers, challenges, and solutions to preventing catastrophic wildfires. “At a time when wildfires are raging across California, it is unconscionable that the wildfire oversight hearing was abruptly canceled,” Assemblyman Kelly Seyarto, R-Murrieta, said.
