Dear SEC Commissioners,

Please do not give in to industry pressures on Section 1504 of the Dodd-Frank Act (the Cardin-Lugar Amendment) - and make sure that ALL companies are covered, every country and every project gets reported, and loopholes that would allow large sums of money to go unreported are closed.

My Comment:

Dear SEC Commissioners, Please do not give in to industry pressures on Section 1504 of the Dodd-Frank Act (the Cardin-Lugar Amendment) - and make sure that ALL companies are covered, every country and every project gets reported, and loopholes that would allow large sums of money to go unreported are closed. I was born and grew up in a dictatorship. Thatís why Iíve spent much of my life fighting corruption. Iíve seen friends beaten. Iíve seen people jailed for calling out their leaders. And I know Africans canít win this fight alone. When the US Congress passed the Cardin-Lugar Amendment in 2010 (with help from ONE, Publish What You Pay and EG Justice), it was a big step forward in combating corruption. When we can see what our governments are paid, we can make sure money is spent saving lives and building schools, not lining the pockets of the politically powerful
