Subject: Comment on proposed rule S7-16-07

August 31, 2007

Dear Chairman Cox:

I urge you to please consider the following.

I request you to not curtail investors' rights to file advisory resolutions under Rule 14a-8. I am an investor and want to continue to be able to raise issues with corporate management. It worries me that the SEC has set forth rules that would reduce the ability of "small" shareholders to affect corporate management.

Any actions that would restrict or eliminate advisory shareholder resolutions would be a disastrous step backwards. Please let me know what action you intend to take on this issue.

Yours sincerely,

Douglas Benoliel
