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.
