More than 800 thousand California property owners face the new fees of about $115 per structure.   Opponents like LaMalfa call the bill a tax.  He represents the 4th district including Nevada, Placer, Yuba and Sutter counties.  Defenders of the new rural fire fee say it’s necessary to fund firefighters in California.
