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

December 8, 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."

Please keep the whistleblowers rules that exist now. And also please make it a Federal crime to steal information from a Bank that is subsequently released to an organization other than the Federal agency involved in receiving whistleblower complaints. This should serve to protect both the whistleblower and the banks from unauthorized disclosure of their information.
