Subject: File No. S7-06-04

I am aware that the SEC has proposed new rules File number S7-06-04 that will require broker/dealers to provide customers with targeted information dealing with certain financial products. I have also been made aware that the SEC has set a seemingly short deadline of April 4th for comments, which to my estimation is not near enough time for those truly impacted by these proposed new rules, to truly digest these proposals, study how they will financially impact the broker/dealers, registered representatives such as myself and my livelihood and even benefit our customers/clients.
Since I truly believe that my colleages and I have not had a substantial opportunity to review the proposal, I ask that the comment period for these proposed new rules be extended for an additional 30 days or more. Thank you for listening
