Dear SEC, please do not change Rule 14-a-8 to restrict or curtail investors’ right to file advisory resolutions. These resolutions are a highly effective way for ordinary investors to get the attention of management, and often lead to important further dialogue on corporate governance, social and environmental issues. This Rule has served investors and companies well. Please to not change it.
Come on, SEC. Such rule changes serve only an industry that needs clarity, moderation, and transparency. Please regard the comments against this rule change seriously.
Cheers! Hank Murrow
