Editorial: Reps. McLane and Huffman help wildfire victims

Just in time for wildfire season, Oregon lawmakers have approved without objection a pair of bills that will give financial aid to some who lose their homes to wildfire. The amount isn’t huge, a maximum of $7,000 per family, but it’s far better than nothing.

The two bills, House Bill 2742 and its companion, HB 2741, are the work of Rep. Mike McLane, R-Powell Butte, and John Huffman, R-The Dalles. They improve upon and add money to an earlier McLane project, the Wildfire Damage Housing Relief Program.
