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:

Stop enabling government corruption at all levels. The people of the many African countries with vast natural resources should be the primary beneficiaries not individual leaders or corporate interests!
