Today's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is very open and Citizen friendly. The EPA websites are informational, contain daily announcements as well as hundreds of requests monthly for public input. A blog on the EPA website that I follow is called, Greenversations. It is friendly, and easier than ever to find comprehensible information. Environmental information in down to earth language.
The Chief Financial Officer - Barbara Bennet is requesting Public Input on EPA's five-year Strategic Plan. A Strategic Plan starts with goals and things that are hoped to be accomplished. According to this Greenversations blog post, they state their further commitment to accountability, openness, and inclusion. http://www.epa.gov/open/
The specific request for Public Participation is the Draft Strategic Plan and how the EPA can work better to protect the Environment and Human Health in our communities and beyond.
