Letter to the Editor: Ted Gaines needs to offer solutions

Ted Gaines’ article about the “Illegal Fire Tax” in the My Turn section of the Aug. 29 Sierra Sun is off the mark. Senator Gaines is a legislator. How to pay the cost of suppressing ever-more catastrophic forest fires is a question that cries out for a legislative solution. Rather than sitting in judgment on the existing law, Senator Gaines should tell us how he thinks these costs should be paid.
