Public and Private Contracting During Colorado Wildfire
Representative Lamborn fields question about military aircraft on hold during wildfires.
Published Wednesday, June 27, 2012
U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colorado Springs, answers questions about a federal law that purportedly prevents military aircraft from helping with fires until all state and local resources are exhausted. Air Force planes, which are ten times more effective than our current firefighting aircraft, sit unused several miles away. Meanwhile, the lives of our brave firefighters and the homes of countless area residents are placed in jeopardy. Rest assured we will be looking closely at this federal law in the coming days.
