Shareholders and public alike deserve to know which corporations are supporting and finacing campaigns no matter the cause or a candidate for office. If I'm a shareholder and find out that my corporation is supporting candidates that I' oppose then I can make the decision to no longer have shares in that corporation. If I am a customer of that company and find out that they are supporting candidates and causes that I oppose then I can make a decision to no longer be a customer. Either way, this is a fair way to make sure that shareholders and customers both can make an informed decision about whether or not to continue support of a corporation that is supporting campaigns and causes that the shareholder or customer is opposed to. I urge you to enact this rule requiring corporations to publically state which campaigns or causes they are finacially supporting!! It's fair for corporations, shareholders, and customers alike.
