Idaho Code, 38-131 and 38-131A authorize the state board of land commissioners to approve
deficiency warrants to cover the costs of fire suppression on state and private forest and
rangelands under the protection of the Department of Lands and the Timber Protective Associations.
There were 353 fires which burned 659 acres during the 1998 fire season.  This bill reimburses
the deficiency warrant fund from the General Fund and provides spending authority for
reimbursements received from other states for the costs of our firefighters to assist them.

Note:  Reappropriation reflects unused funding provided in previous years and carried over into FY
 1999 for Triumph Mine cleanup.
