This exercise is based on an actual negotiated rulemaking that happened in the 1980s.  It requires no special legal or technical expertise and can be used at the graduate, undergraduate or high school level.  The negotiation runs best with 10 people, which allows each party to the negotiation to be represented by a team of two players.  If there are odd numbers, the EPA can be represented by a single student or some teams can be expanded to three players.  With more than three players per team, the negotiation is likely to get unwieldy and multiple negotiations should be run simultaneously.
