Dear members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

This is to request that you prevent publicly traded corporations from making political contricutions anonymously. The public has a right to know if companies are trying to influence public policy bycontributing to politial campaigns. Please establish regulations that will require disclosure of such contributions -- a regulation that will also make it easy for the public to access this information.

I respectfully request your thorough consideration of this concern. Thank you M. K. Tompkins
