Mr. Katz
and Comission;

Thanks for considering taxpayer comments.

Wholeheartedly agree wih the gentlemen who caution the Comission against involving itself in determination of NRSRO pricing models

Maybe the fairest way is for the gov so simply buy the data;
dont want my taxpayer dollars used to force the free issue.
