Dear Sir or Madam,

I would like to highlight the problem of the revolving door of high ranking SEC employees leaving their positions to go work for the very companies that they were charged with investigating.

I propose that this potential conflict of interest be remedied by instituting a minimum 5 year waiting period for all senior employees who leave the SEC before they can work for the companies that they were previously charged with regulating.
