The following Letter Type P, or variations thereof, was submitted by individuals or entities.

Letter Type P:

I am writing to urge the Securities and Exchange Commission to issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending - and to do so now. Dark money groups that accept contributions from corporations, but are not required to identify their donors, spent over 300 million dollars during the 2012 elections. These kinds of groups allow corporations to spend unlimited money on elections, without disclosing any of it. The decisions made by elected lawmakers who benefit from these contributions affect all Americans personally, so both shareholders and the public have a right to know how much corporations spend on politics. I ask that this rule be implemented as soon as possible, and that disclosures be posted promptly on the SECs website. Thank you for considering my comment.
