FEMA Seeks Reimbursement From PG&E For Wildfire Costs

Federal officials are prepared to bill wildfire victims for a portion of nearly $4 Billion the government says it’s owed by Pacific Gas & Electric – if the debt isn’t resolved as part of the utility’s bankruptcy case. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has asked for reimbursement from PG&E to cover costs from the government’s response to recent fires. FEMA says it is compelled to seek compensation from PG&E. Otherwise, individual victims would be responsible if they get settlement funds that duplicate money already paid by the federal government.
