To the and Exchange Commission,

Both young & old Americans deserve protection from predatory
investment practices. I am constantly irked after reading financial
prospectuses to discover the fees and risks not previously disclosed by
the salesperson.

It is difficult to select the best of bad investments when the Federal
Government fails to offer some protection for the small investor.

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.


Mr. Maurice Noonan
