Many risks and hazards along with steep terrain in some areas will impede firefighting efforts.

At the request of the City Council of Laguna Beach, Sen. John Moorlach (R-Costa Mesa), authored SB 1463 in
2016, a bipartisan bill which would have given local governments more
say in fire-prevention efforts through the Public Utilities Commission
proceeding making maps of fire hazard areas around utility lines.

Laguna Beach went through four fires sparked by utility lines in the
last ten years, and has done as much in the way of prevention as they
could afford. The bill would have allowed cities to work with utilities
to underground utility lines, and work with the Public Utilities
Commission to develop updated fire maps by requiring the PUC to take
into consideration areas in which communities are at risk from the
consequences of wildfire — not just those areas where certain
environmental hazards are present.

Gov. Brown vetoed SB 1463, despite being passed by the Legislature, 75-0 in the Assembly and 39-0 in the Senate.

After SB 1463 was killed by Gov. Brown, Sen. Moorlach and his brilliant
staff had an epiphany: Redirect the state’s accumulated cap-and-trade
funds into wildfire prevention.

Authored in 2018, the new Senate Bill 1463, aptly named “Cap and Trees,”
would continuously appropriate 25 percent of state cap-and-trade funds
to counties to harden the state’s utility infrastructure and better
manage wildlands and our overgrown and drought-weakened forests.

“In an effort to reduce the
state’s highest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, curb the
impacts of future wildfires and prevent unnecessary damage to life and
property, Senate Bill 1463 will continuously appropriate 25 percent of
cap and trade funds to counties to harden the state’s utility
infrastructure and better manage wildlands and forests,” the new SB 1463
fact sheet reported.

However, SB 1463 was killed in the radical Senate Environmental Quality Committee by Democrats, even though there was no opposition to it.

It is estimated that “for every 2
to 3 days these wildfires burn, GHG emissions are roughly equal to the
annual emissions from every car in the entire state of California,” USA
Today/Reno Gazette reported in
2017. Last year, there were more than 9,000 major wildfires which
burned over 1.2 million acres. Several of the large fires were caused or
exacerbated by sparking utility lines."

Make no mistake, the recent fires in California are made much worse
because they've happened at the end of the classic hot dry summers we
have, and very windy conditions, but knowing how this is the situation
every year, it would only be prudent to prepare properly. Governor
Brown did his part to prevent that, and now he has the gall to blame the
politicized "science" of anthropogenic global warming instead.

Naturally, that imaginary problem requires expensive government
intervention in all aspects of our lives, and the confiscation of even
more of our wealth.

It's like it's a political game, or something.

    I looked up the legislative history of SB1463. It played out pretty much as the previous poster outlined. This was Brown's veto message:

    "To the Members of the California State Senate:

    I am returning Senate Bill 1463 without my signature.

    This bill requires the Public Utilities Commission to prioritize areas that have increased fire hazard associated with overhead utility facilities.

    Since May of last year, the Commission and CalFire have been doing just that through the existing proceeding on fire-threat maps and fire-safety regulations. This deliberative process should continue and the issues this bill seeks to address should be raised in that forum.

    Sincerely,
    Edmund G. Brown Jr. "

    So...Brown's view is that the intended review is already occurring. Since the Senate and Legislature could have easily overridden the veto, I assume they accepted Brown's reasoning.

    It really is that simple. But if we were to use common sense we would not need all the incompetent bodies in government office seats, they can't have that.

      You dumb Hillbillies, none of these fires would have happened if California would have done what the brilliant President Trump says to do. You Hillbillies should have tree cleared and should be diverting water onto the fires instead of wasting it. Follow your leader, he has a real good brain.

        Why are lefties so full of hate?? "Dumb hillbillies". Then a post full of hate and mockery. But no solutions or opinion of any substance. Just hate.
        By your post I assume you believe that what has been done to the forests by the environmental left is working well? It sure doesn't look that way to me, nor to the folks whose towns are getting leveled.
        And what about all the private landowners and their overgrown lots? Is there no accountability for the mismanagement of the private land? Most of what burned in the Camp fire was private land.

    Do you ever pay attention? These are not forest fires or ranch land fires. These are communities burning. No one logs in Paradise, elevation 1800 ft. Or in Malibu.

      The original poster did offer three other options besides logging. They could have easily cleared it in Paradise, Malibu, etc.
      Doing nothing sure isn't the answer, I think everybody has to see that at this point. Native Americans would burn it every year, but they knew how to manage the land better than we do. The enviros have hugged the forest to death.
      What does elevation 1800 ft have to do with logging? They log at a lot lower elevations than 1800 ft.
