Senior Sen. Mike Crapo's weekly guest opinion is all about an issue unfolding on Boise's doorstep: wildfire.

"In the aftermath of this severe fire season, we must work together to enable land managers to reduce the fuel loads that make it possible for the fires to burn so long and relentlessly. This can help ensure that more of the limited funding goes toward fire prevention rather than resource-depleting response."
