Under Gov. Rick Perry (R) this year, Texas slashed state funding for the volunteer fire departments that protect most of the state from wildfires like the ones that have recently destroyed more than 700 homes.

I'm curious as regards ATSer's reactions on this...

I feel that 'Volunteer' means the guys don't get paid.

(the whole shebang is far more complex than that, though...obviously)
