Subject: File No. 4-637

Dear members of the SEC,

It is in the public interest, which you are committed to serve, to require publicly traded companies to disclose the amount of money spent on political campaigning and lobbying, and the manner for which it was spent.

Because this money is spent to influence our government, this is a matter of concern not only to stockholders, but to all Americans.
