Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 189 / Friday, September 29, 2006 / Notices that are Phlx specialists, alternate specialists, or other Phlx floor members would become XLE Participants, including market makers, upon approval of XLE. This proposed rule change would amend the definition of margin member in SCCP’s rules to add the term market maker 7 and to remove the word floor from the term Phlx floor member. This would allow SCCP members that are currently margin members under Rule 1 of SCCP’s rules to maintain their status as margin members following Phlx’s transition to XLE. SCCP believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 17A of the Act 8 because the proposed rule change is designed to allow current SCCP Margin Members to maintain their status as they transition from the current floor based trading environment on Phlx to an electronic trading system, XLE, and would thereby promote the prompt and accurate clearance and settlement of securities transactions and remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a national system for the prompt and accurate clearance of securities transactions. (B) Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition SCCP does not believe that the proposed rule change would impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. (C) Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others No written comments were solicited or received. III.

[STB Finance Docket No. 34929]


Jeffrey L. Sutch--Continuance in Control Exemption--SMS Rail 
Lines of New York, LLC

    Jeffrey L. Sutch (applicant) has filed a verified notice of 
exemption to continue in control of SMS Rail Lines of New York, LLC 
(SMSNY), upon SMSNY's becoming a Class III rail carrier.
    The transaction was scheduled to be consummated on or after 
September 8, 2006.
    This transaction is related to the concurrently filed verified 
notice of exemption in STB Finance Docket No. 34928, SMS Rail Lines of 
New York, LLC--Acquisition and Operation Exemption--Northeastern 
Industrial Park, Inc. In that proceeding, SMSNY seeks to acquire by 
lease from Northeastern Industrial Park, Inc., and to operate 
approximately 15 miles of rail line in Albany County, NY.
    Applicant is a noncarrier that currently controls SMS Rail Service, 
Inc. (SMSRS), a Class III rail carrier.
    Applicant states that: (1) The rail lines operated by SMSRS do not 
connect with the rail line being acquired by lease and operated by 
SMSNY; (2) the continuance in control is not part of a series of 
anticipated transactions that would connect the rail line being 
acquired by lease and operated by SMSNY with applicant's rail lines or 
with those of any other railroad within applicant's corporate family; 
and (3) the transaction does not involve a Class I rail carrier. 
Therefore, the transaction is exempt from the prior approval 
requirements of 49 U.S.C. 11323. See 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2). The purpose 
of the transaction is to allow applicant to continue in control of 
SMSNY after SMSNY becomes a Class III rail carrier.
    Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(g), the Board may not use its exemption 
authority to relieve a rail carrier of its statutory obligation to 
protect the interests of its employees. Section 11326(c), however, does 
not provide for labor protection for transactions under section 11324 
and 11325 that involve only Class III rail

[[Page 57600]]

carriers. Accordingly, the Board may not impose labor protective 
conditions here, because all of the carriers involved are Class III 
carriers.
    If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, 
the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption 
under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a 
petition to revoke will not automatically stay the transaction.
    An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to STB 
Finance Docket No. 34929, must be filed with the Surface Transportation 
Board, 1925 K Street, NW., Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, one 
copy of each pleading must be served on Fritz R. Kahn, Fritz R. Kahn, 
PC, 1920 N St., NW., Eighth Floor, Washington, DC 20036-1601.
    Board decisions and notices are available on our Web site at 
WWW.STB.DOT.GOV.

    Decided: September 22, 2006.

    By the Board, David M. Konschnik, Director, Office of 
Proceedings.
Vernon A. Williams,
Secretary.
