It's been well discussed, but um I do think it's, it's gone unaddressed for far too long. Um Additionally, I think the regulators themselves owe the marketplace some greater clarity as to how they are going to apply their existing regulations. And I think that could be done through guidance through rule makings. But um in either case, it requires public input. I do think that the onus is both on Congress and the regulatory community.
