Prior to 1980 most of the land was grazed by ranchers who kept the brush cleared. When the BLM kicked them off of the public land there wasent any available water sources for the cattle and sheep to drink and the ranching business turned to fixed, in place dairys. Then the fires started. But the fires generated so much fear and therefor tax revenue and political power that it is one of the third rails in California politics. The annual firefighting budget California wide makes most states, and many countries budgets pale in comparison
    Joe is right one. Here is CA latest 'fee' for fires.

    Which the people already pay in property taxes thus making the 'fee' illegal by Prop 13
