The SEC should immediately restore to its unified agenda the rule that requires publicly traded corporations to disclose their political spending.

American elections are supposed to be by and for American citizens. American corporations, by contrast, can be funded and influenced by anyone in the world, and it's appalling that the SEC propose to hide these foreign influences on American elections.

Thank you for considering my comment.
