Securities and Exchange Comm.

Dear Securities and Exchange Comm.,

Iím writing to urge the SEC to pass clear, strong rules requiring publicly held or traded companies to publicly disclose all their political spending. Investors, shareholders, employees, and customers all have the right to know where and how corporations are spending money outside of their regular business field, particularly when that money is intended to influence public policy and our democracy.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
