The wildfires that swept across California this past October have become the second deadliest experienced by the state in the last century. The fires are responsible for the deaths of 44 people with hundreds still missing and over $3 billion in damage. While many hearings are likely to be held over the next year examining every aspect of this tragedy, two legislative committees have banded together to hold the first overview and begin the painful process of recovery and progress in California.
