Comments:I am writing this letter to express my strong opposition to the purposed Business Opportunity Rule R511993. I understand that it is the responsibility of the Federal Trade Commission to protect the public from "unfair and deceptive acts or practices. "but the rule as proposed would make it very difficult for me to operate my business as a Shaklee Indepentent Distributor. One of the most confusing and burdensome sections of the proposed rule is the seven-day waiting period to enroll new distributors. Most of the people who sign on application do so to purchase Shaklee products at a wholesale price. In other words they are soley consumers of the product. If they later wish to build a business, akk they must do is supply Shaklee Corporation with their Social Securtiy Number or Tax I.D.. there is no additional kit, fee or application required.
