As a U.S. citizen, a tax payer, a voter, a parent, a grandparent, I urge that your commission issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending.
Surely you recognize that you have a fiduciary duty to protect investors from corporate abuse of their rights as investors and shareholders to know how corporations they've invested in are spending corporate income. This requires that all publicly traded corporations disclose their campaign contributions to their stockholders and to the public at large.
It is also in my interest to know how corporations are participating in the political arena, particularly since the infamous Citizens United decision of the U.S. Supreme Court.
I need to know which corporate interests are lobbying to poison my water, pollute my air, endanger my food supplies, restricting my voting rights, as we; as endangering my life and my rights as a pedestrian by covertly lobbying in state legislatures to pass Kill on Sight Gun Laws.
No unlimited secret corporate contributions to campaigns.
