RE: S7-31-99 Selective Disclosure and Insider Trading

Dear Sirs:

I am in favor of the proposed regulation that includes the public, as opposed selective disclosure to specific annalists, in situations where and when a public company discloses information that materially affects the company's stock.

I am pleased that the SEC is proposing to change the present situation that favors select brokerage companies over the public in obtaining disclosed information.

I am affiliated with the Food and Drug Administration as a Consumer Safety Officer.
