Wildfire Matters Review Committee. Section 1 of the bill
creates the wildfire mitigation and recovery grant program (grant
program) in the Colorado state forest service (forest service) to provide
grants to help counties with forested areas prevent and recover from
wildfire incidents and ensure that such efforts are undertaken in a manner

that reduces the amount of carbon that enters the atmosphere. In
expending grant money, a county, to the extent practicable, shall ensure
that biomass that is removed from forests is recycled or disposed of in a
manner that reduces the amount of carbon that enters the atmosphere.
The forest service shall administer the grant program and, subject
to available appropriations, award grants out of money annually
appropriated to the forest service for the grant program. The forest service
shall review grant applications in consultation with the division of fire
prevention and control in the department of public safety and with the
Colorado forest health council in the department of natural resources.
The grant program is repealed, effective September 1, 2028.
Before the repeal, the grant program is scheduled for a sunset review by
the department of regulatory agencies. Section 2 schedules this review.
