Comments on CPA Elimination

Importance: Low
There is still a need for CPA's. 
Currently, a CPA may be filed for any pending application filed before May 29, 2000.
Since there are differences between an RCE and a CPA, an attorney or agent may want
to choose one over the other.  For instance, a CPA is a "new application" while a RCE
is not.
I would suggest waiting until all of the applications filed before May 29, 2000 are no longer
pending before eliminating the CPA.
