From the text ... 'Summary: Air quality regulations are getting more stringent. We need to be involved in writing those regulations. We must be experts on the impact of our emissions, and we must be leaders rather than followers. If a state starts to develop a prescribed burning regulation or amend the one they have, who should step out to write that first draft? Who is credible enough that the state would allow you to do that? You know, credibility really is our best smoke management tool. Be credible.' © 2010, Tall Timbers Research, Inc.
