The Wildfire Suppression and Management Funding Activities Act was enacted as Title I of Division O of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, Fiscal Year. Hence the reference information is the same  as that Act, only specific to that particular division. Section 101 states: “This division may be cited as the ‘Wildfire Suppression Funding and Forest Management Activities Act’.”

The primary importance of the division is that it amends section 251 the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 by adding a new adjustment to the discretionary spending limits for wildfire suppression.
