Executive Budget Proposal – Authorize $278,000 for Forest Fire Protection Grants 
In Governor Tony Evers' FY19 - FY21 budget he proposes authorizing $278,000 for FFP Grants.  Supporting this budget proposal would only restore the FFP grant program to the original funding level (it was reduced by this amount in the 2009-2011 state budget) and allow more fire departments to obtain funding through this valuable grant program.
