Subject: File Number S7-33-10: Whistleblower Award Program

December 7, 2010

Dear Ms. Murphy

I just signed a petition saying:

"More whistleblowing about corporate crimes could have made the foreclosure crisis and economic meltdown less severe. Whistleblowers should never be forced or engouraged to take their concerns to their potentially corrupt bosses first: Those who go directly to the government deserve the strongest rewards and protections allowed by law."

Protect whistleblowers from reprisal by management. corporations have only 1 interest... the bottom line. Some companies will break the law to protect their interests, or use their influence to change the law to suit them (at the expense of us all). Protect those who come forward and try to stop corporate evil.
