Dear Sir or Madam,
I am a registered representative affiliated with an independent broker-dealer. It is my understanding that the SEC has proposed new rules File number S7-06-04 that would require BDs to gather and target and disseminate additional information than that which is currently in effect regarding mutual funds and variable annuities. I am requesting that you extend the deadline for review of this proposal until all parties are able to weigh in on the issue. Thank you.

John Harvey
