Subject: Comment on File Number 4-637

February 11, 2013

Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

It is more than clear that publicly held corporations need to be mandated to make their political contributions public. Their shareholders and the public's interest can only be served by this.

Your action on this issue is long overdue and desperately needed by all the people of this country.

Thank you for considering my comment.

Sincerely,

Thomas Hynes III
