I would hope that the level be removed; not raised to $2.5 million. I have been working and saving tirelessly to meet your $1 million requirement. I trust my decision-making with my money and do not understand why this rule exists in the first place. I have planned future activities with the understanding that $1 million was the requirement. I'd rather see you abolish the requirement all together. At the vey least you should make available the data that supports its existence and that making a raise to it is warranted.
