To those members of the Securities Exchange Commission whom it may concern:

I support the proposal referenced in the subject line of this email. Please take this first step in addressing corporate accountability concerns.

As investing in the private arena becomes more necessary for the future well-being of all Americans, the government should take steps to ensure that investor interests are protected in a manner similar to the consumer interests that are vigilantly protected by other government agencies.

Thank you,
Christopher M. Ouk
