Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

As a shareholder in numerous American corporations, I believe that corporate political contributions should be readily available public information. This is good policy from a number of perspectives: Shareholders should know where their money is going and companies should not be allowed to operate in secrecy when individuals must disclose their contributions. In general, the more information that is public, they better.

So, please do pass require corporations to disclose their political donations in a timely fashion.

Thank you.

Thank you for considering my comment.
