S. Rept. 117-119: Wildland Firefighter Fair Pay Act, Report to Accompany S. 138, Including Cost Estimate of the Congressional Budget Office, June 9, 2022   [open pdf - 343KB]

From the Purpose and Summary: "S. 138, the Wildland Firefighter Fair Pay Act, establishes a pay waiver for federal firefighters at the Departments of Agriculture and the Interior which ensures that firefighters receive pay for all the overtime hours they work through calendar year 2022. The waiver also applies to incident meteorologists in the National Weather Service who accompany firefighters in responding to wildfire emergencies. The bill requires each agency head to submit to Congress by March 30, 2022 a plan for hiring and training additional wildland firefighters and incident meteorologists. The bill also requires the plan to determine ways to modernize firefighter compensation to eliminate the need for such waivers going forward."
