Subject: Petition # 4-637

January 26, 2014

I want to ask you to set a rule that will require publicly traded corporations to disclose all their political spending to both the public and to stockholders. I view this as an important step in protecting democracy in the United States and the protecting the people whom the government should serve.

Corporations should not be able to hide their spending and thus their influence on the political process int our country. Money is influence in our current government, and big money is big influence. It should be public knowledge what publicly traded corporations are doing to direct policies and laws.

Thank you.
