Download as PDF 67006 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 222 / Friday, November 17, 2006 / Notices granting approval of the proposed rule change. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES II. Description The rule change amends the definition of ‘‘margin member’’ in SCCP Rule 1, Definitions, to accommodate the introduction of equity market makers on the Philadelphia Stock Exchange (‘‘Phlx’’) and to reflect the introduction of Phlx’s new equity trading system, XLE, which will replace Phlx’s equity trading floor.3 XLE is an electronic trading system which will provide for the entry, display, ranking, routing, and execution of orders in NMS stocks4 for its members and member organizations (‘‘XLE Participants’’). The current equity specialists will be replaced by market makers, a type of XLE Participant, which will be liquidity providers on XLE.5 SCCP Rule 1, Definitions, currently defines ‘‘margin members’’ as SCCP participants that are Phlx specialists, alternate specialists, or other Phlx floor members specifically approved by the National Securities Clearing Corporation to effect trading in a margin account. Margin members that clear and settle their transactions through SCCP’s ‘‘omnibus clearance and settlement account’’ at NSCC receive margin accounts from SCCP.6 SCCP expects that many of its current margin members that are Phlx specialists, alternate specialists, or other Phlx floor members will become XLE Participants, including market makers, upon approval of XLE. This rule change amends the definition of margin member in SCCP’s rules to add the term market maker7 and to remove the word floor from the term Phlx floor member. This will 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 3 Securities Exchange Act Release No. 54538 (September 28, 2006), 71 FR 59184 (October 6, 2006) [File No. SR–Phlx–2006–43] (Order granting approval of a proposed rule change relating to Phlx’s new equity trading system, XLE). 4 17 CFR 242.600(b)(47). 5 Not every security on XLE will require a market maker. However, if a market maker or multiple market makers choose to register in a security, they must provide a two-sided market in that security on XLE during regular trading hours (usually 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM) of the security. Therefore, some securities on XLE may have no market makers or may have one or more market makers. 6 SCCP Rule 9, Margin Accounts. 7 The rule change in File No. SR–Phlx–2006–43 defines the term ‘‘market maker’’ in Phlx Rule 1, Definitions, paragraph (m). It also adds new rules 170 through 174 to set forth the registration requirements, rights, and obligations of Phlx market makers. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:31 Nov 16, 2006 Jkt 211001 the Act8 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 at Phlx to the XLE electronic trading system 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. III. Discussion Section 17A(b)(3)(F) of the Act requires, among other things, that the rules of a clearing agency be designed to promote the prompt and accurate clearance and settlement of securities transactions.9 SCCP is a member of NSCC and has an omnibus clearance and settlement account at NSCC through which its margin members’ transactions are cleared and settled. The proposed rule change amends the definition of margin member in SCCP’s rules to accommodate the Phlx rule change regarding XLE that was recently approved by the Commission. The proposed rule change neither affects the services SCCP may provide to its member nor affects SCCP’s agreement with NSCC to clear and settle transactions submitted through SCCP’s omnibus account. Accordingly, because the proposed rule change is designed to be consistent with the new Phlx rules for the XLE trading platform and to avoid any confusion with respect to the services SCCP’s members may receive either directly from SCCP or through SCCP’s omnibus clearance and settlement account at NSCC, we find that it is designed to promote the prompt and accurate clearance and settlement of securities transactions. IV. Conclusion On the basis of the foregoing, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of the Act and in particular Section 17A of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder. It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act, that the proposed rule change (File No. SR– SCCP–2006–02) be and hereby is approved. 8 15 9 15 PO 00000 U.S.C. 78q–1.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its determination that the noise exposure maps for Burlington International Airport, as submitted by the City of Burlington under the provisions of Title I of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 1979 (Pub. L. 96–193) and 14 CFR part 150, are in compliance with applicable requirements. DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of the FAA’s determination on the noise exposure maps is November 6, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Richard Doucette, Federal Aviation Administration, New England Region jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:31 Nov 16, 2006 Jkt 211001 Airports Division, 12 New England Executive Park, Burlington, Massachusetts 01803. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA funds that the noise exposure maps submitted for Burlington International Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of Part 150, effective November 6, 2006. Under Section 103 of Title I of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 1979 (hereinafter referred to as ‘‘the Act’’), an airport operator may submit to the FAA noise exposure maps that meet applicable regulations and that depict non-compatible land uses as of the date of submission of such maps, a description of projected aircraft operations, and the ways in which such operations will affect such maps. The Act requires such maps to be developed in consultation with interested and affected parties in the local community, government agencies, and persons using the airport. An airport operator who has submitted such noise exposure maps that are found by FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 150, promulgated pursuant to Title I of the Act, may submit a noise compatibility program for FAA approval that sets forth the measures the operator has taken, or proposes, for the introduction of additional noncompatible uses. The FAA has completed its review of the noise exposure map and related descriptions submitted by the City of Burlington. The specific maps under consideration were ‘‘Figure 1. 2006 Existing Condition Noise Exposure Map’’ and ‘‘Figure 2. 2011 Forecast Condition Noise Exposure Map’’ in the submission. The FAA has determined that these maps for Burlington International Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is effective on November 6, 2006. FAA’s determination on an airport operator’s noise exposure maps is limited to a finding that the maps were developed in accordance with the procedures contained in Appendix A of FAR Part 150. Such determination does not constitute approval of the applicant’s data, information or plans, or a commitment to approve a noise compatibility program or to fund the implementation of that program. If questions arise concerning the precise relationship of specific properties to noise exposure contours depicted on a noise exposure map submitted under Section 103 of the Act, PO 00000 Frm 00101 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 67007 it should be noted that the FAA is not involved in any way in determining the relative locations of specific properties with regard to the depicted noise contours, or in interpreting the noise exposure maps to resolve questions concerning, for example, which properties should be covered by the provisions of Section 107 of the Act. These functions are inseparable from the ultimate land use control and planning responsibilities of local government. These local responsibilities are not changed in any way under Part 150 or through FAA’s review of a noise exposure map. Therefore, the responsibility for the detailed overlaying of noise exposure contours onto the map depicting properties on the surface rests exclusively with the airport operator that submitted the map or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which consultation is required under Section 103 of the Act. The FAA has relied on the certification by the airport operator, under Section 150.21 of FAR Part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished. Copies of the noise exposure maps are available for examination at the following locations: Engineering Office, Room 295 Terminal Building, Burlington International Airport, 1200 Airport Drive, South Burlington VT, Federal Aviation Administration, New England Region, Airports Division, 12 New England Executive Park, Burlington, Massachusetts 01803. Questions may be directed to the individual named above under the heading: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Issued in Burlington, Massachusetts on November 6, 2006.
