Thank your for receiving comments on this vital issue.

Please adopt the proposed amendments to the Dodd-Frank act so that companies will be mandated to disclose their use of conflict minerals. This information is important to consumers like me who do not want to contribute in any way to the atrocities happening in places like the Democratic Republic of Congo. Mandating this disclosure will pressure companies to make ethical purchases instead of fueling resource wars.

Thank you,

Gretchen Peck
