CALIFORNIA - A bipartisan effort is underway in Washington to prevent wildfires in the west. 

California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein and Montana Republican Senator Steve Daines plan to introduce legislation aimed at speeding up logging and other preventative forest fire projects. The legislation mainly helps with projects near roads, trails and transmission lines. 

The Senators say they are working with the US Forest Service on finalizing the bill's wording. 

They plan to introduce the legislation after the Senate's August recess.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
