Securities and Exchange Comm.

Dear Securities and Exchange Comm.,

Shareholders should have a right to know how companies are investing their money. Prospective buyers of stock need that information also.

I urge the SEC to approve rules requiring public disclosure of political spending by publicly-held companies.

Surely it is the SECís responsibility to make sure that companies provide investors with the information one needs to make competent decisions about investing.

Sincerely,

Mary Francis
