Subject: RE: Disclosure Effectiveness Review

The SEC and its commissioners should continue to work on a rule requiring political disclosure from public companies, in the interests of their shareholders. Businesses should not be empowered to use backdoor political channels like nonprofits or associations to do their political bidding, and shareholders have a right to know how executives are using company resources for political purposes — especially if those purposes are against shareholders' interests.

Let's give shareholders another tool to enable them to ensure that THEIR MONEY is being used for purposes they approve at shareholder meetings & disabuse executives that company monies are their own personal piggy bank to use as they wish under the guise that whatever actions they take with companies monies is ipso facto for the good of the companies shareholders.
