Summary

Forest fire protection compacts; codification. Codifies the text of the Southeastern Interstate Forest Fire Protection Compact (the SIFFPC) and the Middle Atlantic Interstate Forest Fire Protection Compact, originally incorporated into the Code of Virginia by reference in 1956 and 1966, respectively. In the section that codifies the SIFFPC, the names of state entities in the Commonwealth are updated. The bill also repeals an obsolete section of the 1956 act that originally provided for the appointment of members to a compact advisory committee; the committee no longer exists. This bill is a recommendation of the Virginia Code Commission.
