To the and Exchange Commission,

As a senior citizen, I feel strongly that we should be able to trust
our financial advisers to put our interests first. However, loopholes
in the current law make it easy for many advisers to take advantage of
hard-working Americans.  Their gain is our loss, and we should be
better protected.

I'm counting on you to make a stronger rule that closes the loophole
and ensures a higher standard than the currently proposed rule.
Americans who've worked hard to save for retirement deserve peace of
mind about their financial security.


Ms. Barbara MacAlpine
