Dear Chairman Cox:

I'm writing to request that you protect the right of investors to file shareholder resolutions and urge you to take no action on the new proposed initiatives. The shareholders own the companies and deserve to be allowed to propose and vote on resolutions to improve corporate governance and performance.
