Subject: File No. 4-637

The Securities and Exchange Commission should require publicly traded corporations to disclose their political spending. Please return the rule to the unified agenda and complete it as soon as possible.

It would be absurd for a small business owner not to know if his or her company’s money is being spent to help elect politicians. The same holds true for shareholders. Both shareholders and the public must be fully informed as to how much corporations spend on politics and which candidates are being promoted or attacked. Disclosures should be posted promptly on the SEC’s web site.

Such "privacy" and secrecy, in the case of PTCs, leads to accusations of racketeering and manipulation.

Thank you for considering my comment.
