Subject: File No. S7-42-10 - Comment from Perry Ramirez

February 10, 2012

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.

My Comment:

It's time to end the evil that corruption is, and do what is right for the majority of the people who don't have millions of dollars at their disposal to buy lobbyists. It's time to put into practice one of the edicts that is in the Declaration of Independence - " that all men are created equal" . It's also time to amend "men" to people. Perry A. Ramirez, CA 92346
