You have the power to bring corporations who can spend investor's money on political activity in secret out into the open.

I am writing to urge the Securities and Exchange Commission to issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending.

Help reign in corporate excesses and make political campaigns transparent again.

Thank you for considering my comment.
