To the and Exchange Commission,

Not everyone completely understands the marketplace, investments and
how best to use their hard-earned income. We all know we need to be
diligent in educating ourselves and careful about who we invest in but
we also need to be able to trust that those who we decide to use to
help us in making investment decisions are awesome monitored just in
case there are a few people that are unscrupulous, we know there are a
few. Sometimes government regulation helps everyone.

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.


Ms. Linda Elder
