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:

The natural wealth of a country is the legacy and property of all of it's citizens and not to be taken away by a few ruthless and powerfull criminals. We must enact laws that will she light on the deals made by large rich oil companies. They can only do thier dirty work in the dark. Lets turn the lights on.
