A decision was requested as to whether section 11 of the Federal Fire Prevention and Control Act of 1974 established permanent indefinite authority for the Treasury to pay claims by local fire fighting districts for services performed on federal property. Section 11 constitutes permanent indefinite appropriation authority to draw money from the Treasury to pay the claims of individual fire departments.
