Dear Securities and Exchange Comm.,

I'm writing to urge the commission to require publicly held companies to disclose their political spending. The shareholders whose money they are spending have a right to know what they are supporting, and the public in general has a right to know about the forces that influence our politics.

Thank you for considering my comment.
