Senate bill 1154 prohibits and penalizes the use of explosive targets during fire season. It’s no secret the northwest’s fire seasons are getting longer and more intense. This bill will help prevent man-made fires from explosive and flammable targets on public lands during the closed fire season. It would make the consequence of starting a fire using  ‘exploding targets’ and ‘incendiary or tracer ammunition’ a misdemeanor in addition to any other cost or punishment imposed.
