Letter: Employees wishing to trade frequenty under Thrifty Savings Plan should pay

Regarding "Some participants protest new Thrift Savings Plan policy," a reader writes: I think that those employees who want to trade frequently should be allowed to do so only if they agree to bear both the additional expense to the TSP of their trades and the cost of reprogramming TSP to bill them for those trades. If only 3,000 or so are seriously interested, I doubt that they will want to bear their share of the multi-million dollar expense.
