"Explain it (the $150 fee) a little bit and what does it go to and how will it be used?"
"Well let's start out with the understanding that the state's economy is one of the worst we've seen in decades. State agencies, including Cal Fire, have taken millions in cuts. In fact, our budget going into this fire season has been cut by $80 million dollars."
~ Daniel Berlant, Cal Fire spokesman
