Rulemaking Matters! Video Contest | US EPA

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.

We know how rules are made: At random.
And we know how to get involved in the process: Either (a) Get elected, or (b) Be important enough to someone ELSE's election that they'll reward you with a nice cushy appointment to some lucrative regulatory agency.

Did I leave anything out?
