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:

Why would you want to give in to the demands of the greedy oil companies? Get yourself on a plane and visit the real people of Guinea before you make any changes to a law that makes it harder for the rich to steal from the poor. Let Africa grow for all of the world to enjoy, don't be a part of bleeding it dry.
