Volume 27 - Issue 23 Wednesday January 18, 2012 ISSN 1937-8416 Julian, CA. Fire Fees Closer State Forestry Board Gives Go Ahead by Michael Hart California's forestry board approved revised regulations Wednesday January 11th for a fee on structures in rural areas where the state has the main firefighting responsibility, a charge that could raise as much as $100 million annually. Wednesday's vote marked the Board of Forestry and Fire Protection's third attempt since last summer to construct regulations imposing a fee on structures in the 31 million acres of "state responsibility area." Lawmakers passed a bill creating the charge as part of the 2011-12 budget adopted in June. Under the regulations approved Wednesday, an estimated 800,000 habitable structures with their own assessor numbers would be subject to a $150 fee. The changes mean that an apartment building would pay just one fee, while a grouping of condominiums with their own assessor numbers would each pay $150. The charge would be reduced by $35 in places covered by a local fire district. That still would mean an additional $115 on your property tax bill. Officials have estimated that applies to about three-quarters of all dwellings. The Office of Administrative Law had raised concerns about an earlier version of emergency regulations to impose the fee. The office is scheduled to act on Wednesday's regulations later this month. The fee is designed to pay for Cal Fire's fire-prevention efforts that benefit people in the state responsibility areas. That includes about 900,000 acres in San Diego county. Over one million in Riverside and San Bernadino Counties. Critics call the charge an illegal and ill-conceived tax that lands heaviest on rural Californians. Opponents have pledged to sue as soon as the first bills go out. Supervisor Jacob said: "l . question the motives of the fire board and the governor for trying to triple tax rural property owners who already pay for fire protection with property taxes and special assessments. There are fewer rural residents than urban residents so this is a politically convenient way for the state to try to pawn off its budget mess on people in rural areas. The triple tax is unfair, legally questionable and does zip to address the state's real problem: bureaucratic bloat." Board members voted 6-2. Forestry board chairman Stanley Dixon of Eureka was one of the dissenters in the 6-2 vote Wednesday. He blamed "the greedy Legislature." Cal Fire was permitted to assess the fee to compensate for a $50 million budget shortfall, after Govenor Jerry Brown took $50 million from the Cal Fire budget to shore up the state's budget. In the next 10 days, the Office of Administrative Law will review the regulation to make sure it meets all legal requirements. After that time, if the panel approves the regulation, both Cal Fire and the Board of Equalization will begin to implement the regulation and the law. An emergency regulation such as this can only stay on the books for 180 days. In the meantime, the board will begin the process of adopting a permanent regulation, a much longer process that includes a public comment period.
