I asked a similar question on class day. In particular, "Would having held a secret clearance continuously for the past thirty years speed up the process any?"

The answer was, "No."

64 Days
I also wrote him when I got my license. Just to let him know that I support the provisional license idea. Not the 120 day idea!
