Put a leash on big oil and gas companies

Subject: Big bullies
Right now, some companies are trying to stop a rule that says if you're an oil and gas company and you make a deal, you have to publish what you pay. If they wins, that means billions of dollars could end up in the pockets of corrupt leaders, rather than life-saving programs to help pull the world's poorest people out of poverty. 

Will you join me and tell the Securities and Exchange Commission #noSecretDeals? Tell them the time is NOW to issue a strong rule that requires oil, mining, and gas companies to be transparent, so money does not fall into the hands of corrupt government officials in Africa.
