A regulatory what?

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:185:height=80,width=70]]The business of regulatory agencies can sometimes be a bit obscure.  There is a swath of legislation known as administrative law that governs how the Federal Communications Commission serves the public.  The same applies to sister agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency, Food and Drug Administration , and Nuclear Regulatory Commission.  It is very important to all of us to make the FCC as open and transparent an agency as possible, but also to make the work that we do more understandable and accessible to everyone.  Whether blogging about upcoming litigation or sharing a screencast of how to file a formal consumer complaint, we’ll continue to scale out and revamp these efforts.   

Regulations.gov, EPA, and others recently held a contest asking citizens to submit videos explaining the federal rulemaking process and showing why it matters to you and me.  The winner was recently announced and we wanted to share it here at FCC.gov, too.  Enjoy!
