California Burning – Panel Discussion
California once again experienced one of the largest wildfires in state history in 2021, in the shadow of a severe drought that is increasing fire danger. In this panel discussion from PRI’s annual Ideas in Action Conference in Sacramento, policy experts discuss what can be done to reduce wildfires and reform the state’s water policies. The speakers include Steven Greenhut, author of the PRI book Winning the Water Wars; the Hon. Daniel Kolkey, PRI Board Member and Chair of the California Reform Committee; the Hon. James Gallagher, California State Assemblymember of the 3rd District; and Brian Isom, Research Manager, Center for Growth and Opportunity at Utah State University.
