“Dollars have to come from somewhere,” Weissman said. “It’s either ratepayers, taxpayers, shareholders or victims. As these wildfires might pile up, you’re going to reach a point of saturation very quickly, where either ratepayers can’t pay their bills, shareholders won’t buy the stock and on down the line. There’s no substitute for doing what we can to prevent wildfires. What a bill like this does is buys a little time.”
