Subject: File No. 4-637

May 11, 2015

The SEC has a duty to protect investors and promote the public interest by issuing a rule requiring disclosure of political contributions by publicly traded companies.

Shareholders need to know whether their money is being used to run a business or to run election attack ads.

Please place a rule on the unified agenda by the end of May 2015 that will require disclosure of political spending, as laid out in file number 4-637.

How can the USA be considered a democracy if its government is for sale? Spending disclosures are a badly needed first step in reclaiming fairness.
