From the text ... 'A major problem that land management agencies must overcome is that air quality agency staff usually do not have an understanding for the needs and uses of prescribed fire. While air quality agency staff have excellent understanding of control equipment for stationary pollution sources, they often have little understanding of biological processes and the natural role of fire in driving those processes. As a result, it is possible that air quality regulations will be proposed for which the air quality staff does not understand the full consequences.'
