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
“This is double taxation at least.”
- Dave Peats, Alpine County Assessor
“This tax was dreamed up by politicians in Sacramento who are so desperate for revenue that they were willing to ram this through the legislature without the proper two-thirds vote.”
- Jon Coupal, Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, President
Senator George Runner (Ret.), Member of the State Board of Equalization.
