                303.2 Burn day determinations will be made covering the
                      entire California North Coast Air Basin; however, more
                      restrictive conditions may be specified by a District 
                      for localized problem areas.

                303.3 Upon requests from a permittee through a designated
                      agency, seven days in advance of a specific range 
                      improvement, forest management, or wildland vegetation 
                      management burn at any elevation below 6,000 feet 
                      (msl), a permissive-burn or no-burn notice will be 
                      issued by the ARB up to 48 hours prior to the date
                      scheduled for the burn.  Without further request, a 
                      daily notice will continue to be issued until a 
                      permissive-burn notice is issued.

                303.4 A permissive-burn or no-burn advisory outlook will be

                303.5 The ARB or the District may cancel permissive-burn
                      notices that have been issued more than 24 hours in 
                      advance if the cancellation is necessary to maintain 
                      suitable air quality.
