After spending money on helping illegal aliens, Governor Jerry Brown of California is out of funds. He’s asking the Federal Government for $18 million or he will let our national forests burn to the ground.

The head of California’s emergency services on Monday penned a letter to the U.S. Forest Service that raised to prospects that the state may stop protecting national forests during fires.
Emergency Services Director Mark Ghilarducci said the agency has stiffed local governments $18 million for fighting wildfires on federal lands last year.
“I cannot continue to support the deployment of resources to protect federal land that ultimately may bankrupt our local governments,” Ghilarducci said in the letter sent Monday to Forest Service Chief Thomas Tidwell.
Some communities were just recently reimbursed for last summer’s Cedar Fire in Sequoia National Forest and several Northern California counties are still awaiting payments for other fires.
“They’re frustrated to the point where they’re considering not responding to Forest Service fires anymore,” Webb said. “Why participate in this agreement if we’re not being reimbursed? … That’s going to affect the entire mutual aid system throughout the state.”
