Subject: Comments to SEC on File Number S7-16-07

September 4, 2007

Dear Chairman Cox:

As a concerned investor, I am alarmed that the SEC has issued rules that could curtail or eliminate the ability of shareholders like myself to raise important issues with corporate management. I urge you to not curtail investors' rights to file advisory resolutions under Rule 14a-8.

Advisory resolutions play a vital role in encouraging corporations to be responsive to their owners. They help to promote improved corporate governance, greater accountability, and more meaningful disclosure.

As a typical investor, one who is using mutual funds to save for my retirement, I feel powerless enough already regarding what my money is funding. Taking away what little voice I have is disturbing.

Any actions that would restrict or eliminate advisory shareholder resolutions would be a disastrous step backwards. Please let me know what action you intend to take on this issue.

Yours sincerely,

Joyce Micochero
