The Sacramento Bee’s Dan Walters comments on the connection between CAL FIRE’s secret fund and the Fire Fee in a report called “Dan Walters Daily: Hidden money and false poverty”
“Please understand that we are opposed to this fire fee because we believe it is a way to get around our tax laws requiring a 2/3 vote.”
- David from Butte Valley
“[The fire fee] was promised and promoted and passed to be dedicated for fire prevention. That has been irrefutably disproven.”
- Senator Jim Nielsen, California State Senate 4th District
“I live on only Social Security… and it’s already very difficult for me to make ends meet.”
