News: Cardin-Lugar Anti-Corruption Rule Under Threat – TAKE ACTION

Friends of transparency and good governance – it’s time to activate!

1504 final

The regulation implementing the groundbreaking anti-corruption law, the Cardin-Lugar Provision of the Dodd Frank Act (Section 1504), is in critical danger of being repealed by the House and Senate. This law allows citizens in resource rich countries to ‘follow the money’ and hold their governments accountable for graft, waste and abuse.



Congress is supposed to stop corruption – not facilitate it!

This regulation is supported by civil society groups around the world, investors with nearly $10 trillion in assets under management, government officials and nearly all major oil, gas and mining companies.

Please, call your Senators’ district and DC offices using the phone numbers in the spreadsheets below and make your outrage known.

If you need some help, here is what you can say when you call:

I am calling because I am concerned citizen from [State]. I have heard that Congress is attempting to undo an important oil and gas anti-corruption regulation, called Section 1504 of Dodd-Frank, using the Congressional Review Act.

This regulation, also known as the Cardin-Lugar Provision, is meant to give citizens like me information about if we are getting a good deal on our nation’s natural resources. It also protects our national energy and security interests by decreasing corruption abroad.

After trying to dismantle the Congressional Office of Ethics, it makes no sense for Congress to go after ANOTHER anti-corruption provision.

I want to know if you (your boss) plans on voting AGAINST [H.J.Res.41 (House) / S.J.Res.9 (Senate)] to undo this critical provision?”

Thank you for your support!
