Unfortunately, they view the problem as funding, rather than management:
Do you really expect us to believe those puny little "forest restoration" projects are going to fix 60+ years of bad management? That is laughable.
We have larger, more frequent, and hotter fires because laws such as NEPA and the ESA prevent the Forest Service from applying the appropriate management in a timely fashion. You can keep going through cycles using different funding mechanisms, and the results will be the same. Apply the appropriate management and fires will be smaller, less frequent, inflict less damage, and cost less to control.
If you can't amend these laws, then at least provide some exemptions to the land management agencies so they can get on with the job of rationally protecting our natural resources.
