    `As the dangerous wildfires continue to batter Southern California, I extend
    my deep condolences to the families of Captain Tedmund Hall and firefighter
    Specialist Arnaldo Quinones, who paid the ultimate price last night while
    protecting Southern California from disaster. Captain Hall and Specialist
    Quinones exemplify the selflessness embodied in the nearly 3,000
    firefighters from Los Angeles, Burbank, Glendale and across California who
    courageously work around the clock to limit loss of life and property.'

    public safety officers who have been killed in the line of duty. The
    legislation, AB 671, passed the Senate Committee on Appropriations August 17
    and is headed to a vote on the Senate floor Wednesday. The Assembly plans to
    officially honor the fallen firefighters at the end of session today.

    Assemblymember Paul Krekorian represents the cities of Burbank and
    Glendale, and the Los Angeles communities of Atwater Village, Los Feliz,
