-The proposed rule change relating to the amendments to the Panel Composition Rule will be most important change in FINRA arbitration to date. The right of the investor to chose whether to have a panel composed of all public arbitrators is critical to the fairness, and appearance of fairness, of this forum. I strongly support this rule change.
