Gavin Newsom signing AB2147 among trees that burned in the North Complex Fire.

After a record wildfire season, Governor Gavin Newsom unveiled a $536 million plan on Thursday to help California avoid future fires.

In January Newsom announced that he would spend $323 million on forest health and fire prevention projects this spring.

The legislators said Thursday’s agreement broadens the governor’s plan, with more short- and long-term spending on vegetation management on public and private land, clearing space around homes and making them less susceptible to wildfires, fire grants and prevention courses.

The new plan is in both the GOP’s House and Senate budget bills, which Newsom said will be examined by lawmakers as early as Monday so that he can sign them into law Tuesday.

“With California facing another extremely dry year, it is critical that we get a head start on reducing our fire risk,”Gavin Newsom

‘With California facing another extremely dry year, it is critical that we get a head start on reducing our fire risk,’ Newsom and the other fellow Republicans in the House and Senate who lead the group said in a joint statement.

Earlier this month, the governor used his emergency authority to authorize almost $1,400 million to hire almost 1.400 more firefighters.
