The 2021-22 Budget

Wildfire Resilience Package

The Governor’s 2021-22 budget includes $1 billion for roughly two dozen proposals designed to reduce the risk of severe and damaging wildfires. Our comments on this package are contained in two reports. In the first report, we summarize the administration’s proposed package and raise a range of issues for the Legislature’s consideration. In the second report, we include more detailed information and comments related to each program included in the proposed package.
