Virginia Bans Charity Car Washes


Just when you thought government had already found every possible way to un-incentivize people from being self-reliant and charitable, they come: up with yet another regulation.: What was once a fun and easy way to raise money for kids and students has now been deemed illegal by the state of Virginia. Why? For completely valid: environmental reasons, of course.

Charity car washes and car wash fundraisers are now banned there, after the city’s Department of Environmental Services: issued new rules for stormwater and water runoff.

The county pins the blame on the Virginia General Assembly, which approved more stringent water regulations last year.

There is an underlying reason why most types of car washing are not allowed under state and federal stormwater regulations,” DES spokeswoman Shannon Whalen told the Arlington News.

But don’t fret! Shannon Whalen: wants you to see the benefit of this intrusive regulation.

“There are educational and environmental benefits that come with finding new and environmentally friendly ways to raise money for extracurricular activities,” she said.

The radical: environmental movement: is totally out of control in this country.:
