Dear Person,

I strongly support retention of the Conflict Minerals Rule. It has been effective, reduced violence and allowed for ethical decisions to be made by those who both make and who purchase products free of conflict zones. No rule should condone force and violence as a matter of business. Please keep the current rules in place. The cost of implementation is not burdensome. The gains are considerable. Thank you and sincerely, Suzanne
