I do not understand why you would push to force consumers to "opt-in" for paper based communications from investment houses and mutual fund companies. All surveys point to consumer preferences for paper based communication and statements. You cannot read these types of materials well on a computer. My mother, Edith Pearce, is 80 years old and has several investment accounts, do you really think she is going to get on her tablet and look up quarterly statements?

If people don't want the paper statements, let them "opt-out" for whatever reason they choose.

Thank you for giving citizens the opportunity to provide input. I speak for myself and my mother on this issue.
