The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The self-regulatory organization has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose On October 5, 2006, the Exchange proposed a Pilot to, among other things, make operative certain proposed modifications to Exchange Rules that are the subject of pending rule filings 7 before the Commission to coincide with the Exchange’s implementation of Phase 3 of the Hybrid Market. The Pilot commenced following Commission 5 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 54578 (October 5, 2006), 71 FR 60216 (October 12, 2006). 6 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 53539 (March 22, 2006), 71 FR 16353 (March 31, 2006). 7 See Securities Exchange Act Release Nos. 54504 (September 26, 2006), 71 FR 57011 (September 28, 2006) (proposing to amend the specialist stabilization requirements set forth in Exchange Rule 104.10) (‘‘Stabilization Filing’’); 54520 (September 27, 2006), 71 FR 57590 (September 29, 2006) (proposing to amend several Exchange Rules to clarify certain definitions and systemic processes) (‘‘Omnibus Filing’’); and SR–NYSE– 2006–73 (filed on September 13, 2006) (proposing to amend Exchange Rule 127 which governs the execution of a block cross transaction at a price outside the prevailing NYSE quotation) (‘‘Block Cross Filing’’). PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 approval, on October 5, 2006 and is scheduled to terminate at the close of business on October 31, 2006. Through this filing the Exchange seeks to make a technical amendment to Rule 104.10(6)(P3). Specifically, pursuant to the Pilot, in order to eliminate possible confusion as to which Exchange Rules or sections apply to the securities operating pursuant to the Pilot (‘‘Pilot securities’’),8 the Exchange identified the rules operational during the Pilot with a ‘‘P3.’’ A typographical error identified subparagraph (iv) under Exchange Rule 104.10(6)(P3) with a ‘‘P4.’’ As a result, that subparagraph currently appears as follows: (iv)(P4) Re-entry Obligations for Conditional Transactions: The Exchange seeks to delete the number ‘‘4’’ after the letter ‘‘P’’ and replace it with the number ‘‘3’’ in order accurately reflect that subparagraph’s inclusion in the Pilot. The Exchange further seeks to add a security to the Pilot securities. The Exchange identified the specific securities included in the Pilot securities in the form of an Exhibit 3 to the Pilot filing. Included in the Pilot securities was Agilent Technologies, Inc. which is traded on the Exchange under the stock symbol ‘‘A.’’ On or about October 16, 2006, Agilent will distribute the results of a spin-off. Anyone who purchases the stock after the distribution date would not be entitled to the distribution. Accordingly, on Monday, October 16, 2006, Agilent stock in an ‘‘ex-distibution’’ form will begin trading on the Exchange under the stock symbol ‘‘A.WD.’’ A.WD will trade at the same post and panel as Agilent. Given the relationship between Agilent and A.WD stock, the Exchange requests to have A.WD included in the Pilot securities. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act 9 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act 10 in particular, in that it is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is also designed to support the principles of 8 Phase 3 Pilot Securities are also posted on the Exchange’s Web site. 9 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). 10 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).

B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will 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 The Exchange has neither solicited nor received written comments on the proposed rule change.12 mstockstill on PROD1PC76 with NOTICES III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) by its terms, become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, it has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 13 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder.14 A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) normally may not become operative prior to 30 days after the date of filing. However, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)(iii) 15 permits the Commission to designate a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Exchange has requested that the Commission waive the five-day prefiling requirement and the 30-day operative delay and designate the proposed rule change immediately operative upon filing. The Commission is exercising its authority to waive the five-day pre-filing requirement and believes that waiver of the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. Specifically, the Commission believes that the correction of the rule reference as a Pilot rule should provide clarity as to which rules are applicable to the Pilot securities. Further, the Commission believes that adding A.WD 11 15 U.S.C. 78k–1(a)(1).

Accordingly, the Commission designates the proposal to be effective and operative upon filing with the Commission.16 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission may summarily abrogate such proposed rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act.

II. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

    In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange included statements 
concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and 
discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The 
text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in 
Item IV below. The self-regulatory organization has prepared summaries, 
set forth in Sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant 
aspects of such statements.

A. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

 1. Purpose
    On October 5, 2006, the Exchange proposed a Pilot to, among other 
things, make operative certain proposed modifications to Exchange Rules 
that are the subject of pending rule filings \7\ before the Commission 
to coincide with the Exchange's implementation of Phase 3 of the Hybrid 
Market. The Pilot commenced following Commission approval, on October 
5, 2006 and is scheduled to terminate at the close of business on 
October 31, 2006.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Securities Exchange Act Release Nos. 54504 (September 
26, 2006), 71 FR 57011 (September 28, 2006) (proposing to amend the 
specialist stabilization requirements set forth in Exchange Rule 
104.10) (``Stabilization Filing''); 54520 (September 27, 2006), 71 
FR 57590 (September 29, 2006) (proposing to amend several Exchange 
Rules to clarify certain definitions and systemic processes) 
(``Omnibus Filing''); and SR-NYSE-2006-73 (filed on September 13, 
2006) (proposing to amend Exchange Rule 127 which governs the 
execution of a block cross transaction at a price outside the 
prevailing NYSE quotation) (``Block Cross Filing'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Through this filing the Exchange seeks to make a technical 
amendment to Rule 104.10(6)(P3). Specifically, pursuant to the Pilot, 
in order to eliminate possible confusion as to which Exchange Rules or 
sections apply to the securities operating pursuant to the Pilot 
(``Pilot securities''),\8\ the Exchange identified the rules 
operational during the Pilot with a ``P3.'' A typographical error 
identified subparagraph (iv) under Exchange Rule 104.10(6)(P3) with a 
``P4.'' As a result, that subparagraph currently appears as follows:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ Phase 3 Pilot Securities are also posted on the Exchange's 
Web site.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (iv)(P4) Re-entry Obligations for Conditional Transactions:
    The Exchange seeks to delete the number ``4'' after the letter 
``P'' and replace it with the number ``3'' in order accurately reflect 
that subparagraph's inclusion in the Pilot.
    The Exchange further seeks to add a security to the Pilot 
securities. The Exchange identified the specific securities included in 
the Pilot securities in the form of an Exhibit 3 to the Pilot filing. 
Included in the Pilot securities was Agilent Technologies, Inc. which 
is traded on the Exchange under the stock symbol ``A.'' On or about 
October 16, 2006, Agilent will distribute the results of a spin-off. 
Anyone who purchases the stock after the distribution date would not be 
entitled to the distribution. Accordingly, on Monday, October 16, 2006, 
Agilent stock in an ``ex-distibution'' form will begin trading on the 
Exchange under the stock symbol ``A.WD.'' A.WD will trade at the same 
post and panel as Agilent. Given the relationship between Agilent and 
A.WD stock, the Exchange requests to have A.WD included in the Pilot 
securities.
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent 
with Section 6(b) of the Act \9\ in general, and furthers the 
objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act \10\ in particular, in that it 
is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to 
remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open 
market and a national market system, and, in general, to protect 
investors and the public interest. The Exchange believes that the 
proposed rule change is also designed to support the principles of

[[Page 62143]]

Section 11A(a)(1) of the Act \11\ in that it seeks to assure 
economically efficient execution of securities transactions.

    \11\ 15 U.S.C. 78k-1(a)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will 
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

    The Exchange has neither solicited nor received written comments on 
the proposed rule change.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ The Commission notes that it has received comments on the 
Omnibus Filing and the Stabilization Filing.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for 
Commission Action

    Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) 
Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public 
interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) 
by its terms, become operative for 30 days from the date on which it 
was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if 
consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, it 
has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \13\ 
and Rule 19b-4(f)(6) thereunder.\14\

    \13\ 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A).
    \14\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b-4(f)(6) normally may 
not become operative prior to 30 days after the date of filing. 
However, Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii) \15\ permits the Commission to designate 
a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of 
investors and the public interest. The Exchange has requested that the 
Commission waive the five-day pre-filing requirement and the 30-day 
operative delay and designate the proposed rule change immediately 
operative upon filing. The Commission is exercising its authority to 
waive the five-day pre-filing requirement and believes that waiver of 
the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of 
investors and the public interest. Specifically, the Commission 
believes that the correction of the rule reference as a Pilot rule 
should provide clarity as to which rules are applicable to the Pilot 
securities. Further, the Commission believes that adding A.WD as a 
Pilot security is appropriate so that it and its related security, A, 
are traded in a similar manner on the Exchange. Accordingly, the 
Commission designates the proposal to be effective and operative upon 
filing with the Commission.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6)(iii).
    \16\ For purposes only of waiving the operative delay for this 
proposal, the Commission has considered the proposed rule's impact 
on efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 U.S.C. 
78c(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule 
change, the Commission may summarily abrogate such proposed rule change 
if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or 
appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or 
otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act.

change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of
