Subject: File No. 4-637

Issuing a ruling in 2012 requiring all publicly traded corporations to disclose, in its entirety, political spending, is well within your purview, and a ruling that should have been issued years ago.

The SEC has both the ability and the authority to close the loophole SCOTUS created with their ruling in Citizens United v Federal Election Commission, and issuing a ruling such as the one outlined above would accomplish that.

In order for the proposed ruling to be effective, the proposed ruling must also require that the SEC post on their website, in a timely fashion, the information received from publicly traded corporations in response to this ruling.

Thank you for considering my comment.
