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.
On the other hand, if you insist on allowing things to continue the way they are, at least please tell the American people, in plain English, the true reasons why you are allowing "dark money" from publicly traded companies to be spent without the companies having to disclose this information to their shareholders, especially within a very short period of time after making the contributions.Julie Robichaud
