I would request that the SEC begin requiring publicly traded corporations to release all their political spending to public review.

This spending is used by various groups to influence elections and elected officials and if the electorate cannot see the identity of all who are funding these attempts to influence their vote, they cannot come to informed opinions as to the goals and motives of these groups and the validity of their arguments.

To purposely keep Americans in the dark as to the identity of who is attempting to influence their political decisions seems, to me, counter to the spirit of our democracy and the intent of our founders to create a nation governed by it's citizens.
