From Senator Tester:
Record temperatures and a historic drought have turned Montana into a tinderbox. Dozens of wildfires have consumed more than 900,000 acres across our great state and the smoke has settled in a thick haze over many of our communities. We’ve tragically lost two brave firefighters and seen homes, farms, ranches, and businesses crumble before our eyes. This is the very definition of a natural disaster. So as Congress works to get resources to the folks devastated by Harvey, I hope we can also work to get Montana, and the rest of the West the resources we need to fight these fires.
