Dear Chairman Cox:
I urge you to drop the suggested proposal curtailing investors' right to file advisory resolutions under Rule 14a-8.
As an investor, I know that the right of shareholders - even small shareholders - to propose these resolutions has helped the companies I own to become better companies.
Restricting or eliminating advisory shareholder resolutions would be a disastrous step backwards. Please let me know what action you intend to take on this issue.
