After the collapse of secret negotiations that sought to change federal policy to send more water to Central Valley farmers, California's Republican lawmakers have come up with Plan B: a completely new water bill.
It sounds so logical and simple.
Shouldn’t those men and women in turnouts, jumping from planes, trudging through the wilderness with axes and other hand tools they use to battle some of the most destructive blazes in history be called what they are? Wildland firefighters.
REDDING, California - Under a bill recently introduced in Congress, wildland firefighters could someday be called wildland firefighters.
U.S. Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-Richvale, has introduced a bill that would change the job title of employees in five federal land management agencies to “wildland firefighter.”
As a member of this area’s veteran community I want to thank Congressman LaMalfa and his staff for their untiring efforts to bring veterans’ claims to light and have them processed. The regional office, in Oakland had been sitting on and hiding veterans’ claims for years. Some were found stacked in a broom closet. One veteran’s claim had languished in that office for over 30 years.
