Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of Service Corporation International and Stewart Enterprises, Inc.; File No. 131-0163
Please change your proposed order to require the divestiture of Hines Rinaldi Funeral Home and, if necessary, the retention of Segal. Only Hines Rinaldi would provide real competition to Stewart for the unique and important market for Jewish funerals in the Washington Metro area. Your proposed order would have a very real and substantial adverse economic impact on the large Washington Jewish market and its people. Please reconsider and address the problem that you articulated but with the different relief that I (and tens of thousands of others)need and want. Thank you.
