Subject: File No. S7-42-10 - Comment from Hope Law

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:

I do work in Sierra Leone West Africa every year and we are starting to see the big oil companies coming into the country. Please do not let it be like the Diamond Mining and only a very small % goes to the people who risk their lives. Please put a check on these companies from coming in third world countries and bleeding them once again. These people need your voice to make a difference in their lives. Thank you!
