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.
Transparency is always a safeguard against corruption. We ask simply that the transaction figures be made available for public scrutiny. If these governments and corporations feel their actions are legal and not harmful, then there should be no resistance against efforts to analyze these transaction records. Thank you for your understanding. Ron Milton
