EPA launches troubling contest to motivate interest and participation in rulemaking

April 26, 2010

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency wants you to help them celebrate federal rules and rulemaking.

They want you to produce a 60 to 90 second video extolling the importance of federal rules and regulations.  According to the contest description on the EPA website:

Almost every aspect of our lives is touched by federal regulations. Even before you leave the house in the morning, government regulations help set the price of the coffee you drink, the voltage of electricity your alarm clock uses, and the types of programming allowed on the morning news. But many Americans don’t understand how rules are made or how they can get involved in the process.

This video contest is your opportunity to explain federal rulemaking and motivate others to participate in the rulemaking process.


Oh yeah, if you win the contest, EPA will award you a $2,500 prize courtesy of the U. S. taxpayer.

We need to find someone willing to produce a short video on how the proposed spray drift rules will complicate the lives of farmers and open them to citizen lawsuits.

Aren’t regulations great?   Is there something backwards about this?

Get that contest entry on to YouTube before May 17.
