Please pass a rule that requires publicly traded companies to make prompt public disclosure of all their political donations on the SEC website.  Please make it a strong and effective rule without loopholes.  The corporations may not like it, but the shareholders have a right to know and the citizens of this country should have an understanding and knowledge about where the huge dollars that support various political candidates come from. 

Thank you.
