I hope that after thoughtful review the SEC decides to withdraw, not amend, this proposal. It will confuse the public and hinder the investors ability to receive full disclosure. Total clarity and transparency is needed to restore investor confidence. It must be earned. Thank you for acknowledging these concerns. Withdrawal is the proper course of action at this time.
