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 want to make sure that oil companies have to disclose and are utterly transparent about their income and their business partners - in all countries. I know it is impossible to expect this to happen voluntarily, so we must require compliance. Please ensure that any company with a material stake in oil production, refination or distribution is required to disclose what they pay. Thank you! Mary Cosgrove Plymouth, MN
