This question was just posed recently. I think is there is a legitimate issue with a particular property endangering another's, then Yes. However, based on the recent Dpt. of Forestry assessments which were rescinded because they are so outdated, no one should have to bsed on those assessments.

We have freedoms in how we manage our own homes but we also have an obligation to be good citizens. When it comes to human lives, that obligation should outweigh personal preferences.

I don't know that the state should require it, but I think the insurance companies should.

The government should start with logging the forest so it's not overgrown where ALL fires start!!

The bigger risk is the homeless campers off China Hat and in other parts of the county. The state needs to address that problem first before further burdening law-abiding, tax-paying citizens.

I'll go with "no" on this one. If there's insurance on the house, the insurer could do that. Ditto for any mortgage holder. If neither applies, I don't think we should try to regulate stupidity.

To much government control is a bad thing

Well, too much of anything is bad, but protecting people's lives is not too much.

More laws don't fix everything. Especially when they can't or won't be enforced. People should just do it out of common sense.

I can’t see why anybody would want to be ruled by modern liberals anymore at this point.

Oregon leadership is destroying our once wonderful state. Drugs, homeless and high taxes, they trying to turn Oregon into another California.

If you're so enamored with Idaho, move there. It's what an adult would do. Sadly, we're not dealing with adults. The child would inconvenience the majority to get It's way. Hint: the border will never be moved, quit wasting our time. This adult is staying in Oregon. The children can move.
