To the and Exchange Commission,

I'm a retired Chicago Fire Department Paramedic, that served Chicago
for 26 years & my Pension is in danger because of the City's
refusal to put in the funds that they had promised to pay back! We only
have our investments to rely upon, should the pension fund go belly up.
We have financial advisors "helping" us with those investments & if
they are allowed to manipulate our investments for their gain, no
matter how much we lose, that's a true travesty! Please do not allow
that to happen!

I'm counting on you to make a stronger rule that closes the loophole.
Americans who've worked hard to save for retirement deserve peace of
mind about their financial security.
Thank you for you consideration!


Mr. Mark Tanabe
