Commissioner Piwowar,

I am writing to ask you to preserve the Conflict Minerals Rule. The rule has led to a significant reduction in violent control of mines in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and it rewards US corporations who work for more ethical supply chains.

Please keep the Conflict Minerals Rule in place and vigorously enforce it going forward.

Matt Steen
