The EPA, along with other major federal agencies, received failing marks for not being able to meet the requirements of a  2010 law. The law requires bureaucrats to  write official documents with the public in mind — less jargon, more verbs.

It’s for taxpayers filling out forms, and farmers trying to get government loans, and people applying for HUD loans,” said the law’s author, Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa. “Until every grade is an ‘A,’ we will keep holding these bureaucrats’ feet to the fire.”
