Initiative: 16 CFR Part 429; Rule Concerning Cooling-Off Period For Sales Made At Homes Or At Certain Other Locations; FTC File No. P087109

I believe the "Cooling Off Rule" should remain unchanged. Although inflation may be a valid rationale for an increase in the dollar amount the number of door-to-door sales people with high pressure questionable tacts has increased greatly in the past 10 years.
Any increase in the dollar amount which invokes the "Cooling Off Rule" will only result in increased motivation for companies and individuals to more actively persue door-to-door sales.
Please leave the rule as is or tighten it to give the consumer greater protection.
