The chief of the U.S. Service is reacting to an El Dorado County Sheriff's plan to strip federal officers of their authority to enforce state laws in the county.

"We're very concerned about that, and I'm going to have my director of law enforcement sit down with our folks and see how they can address the concerns the sheriff has," Chief Tom Tidwell said.
