Dear SEC Commissioners,
Please do not give in to industry pressures on Section 1504 of the Dodd-Frank Act (the Cardin-Lugar Amendment) - and make sure that ALL companies are covered, every country and every project gets reported, and loopholes that would allow large sums of money to go unreported are closed.
I grew up in Nigeria so I know what Tutu says is accurate. Its makes no sense that the vast majority of citizens that live in a country rich with oil, live in poverty and despair while the corrupt politicians fatten their coffers; And to express dissent is tantamount to signing your death warrant, that is why transperency laws such as the Cardin-Lugar Amendment needs to be adhered according to the letter.
