Download as PDF 68878 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 228 / Tuesday, November 28, 2006 / Notices A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) under the Act 17 normally may not become operative prior to 30 days after the date of filing. However, Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii) under the Act 18 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 30-day operative delay, which would make the rule change effective and operative upon filing. The Commission believes that waiver of the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest because the proposed rule change clarifies the operation of Phlx Rule 185A with respect to the protection of better-priced quotations in Nasdaq Securities. Accordingly, the Commission designates the amended proposal to be effective and operative upon filing with the Commission.19 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, as amended, the Commission may summarily abrogate such 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.20 number should be included on the subject line if e-mail is used.

The Commission will post all comments on the Commission’s Internet Web site (http://www.sec.gov/ rules/sro.shtml).

Copies of the filing also will be available for inspection and copying at the principal office of the Phlx.

(‘‘PPLP’’) for a Presidential permit, pursuant to Executive Order 13337 of April 30, 2004, to operate and maintain a pipeline for transporting petroleum products from El Paso, Texas, to Juarez, Mexico (‘‘Juarez pipeline’’), crossing the international boundary line between the United States and Mexico at a point near El Paso, Texas. On June 19, 1995, the Department of State, acting pursuant to delegated authority, issued a Presidential permit to the Chevron Pipe Line Company (‘‘Chevron’’), a Delaware corporation with its principal offices in San Francisco, California, to ‘‘construct, connect, operate and maintain’’ the Juarez pipeline. According to the application, PLPP acquired the Juarez pipeline from Chevron on September 1, 2006 as part of a large asset acquisition. According to the application, PPLP is a Texas Limited Partnership engaged in the interstate and intrastate transportation of crude oil by pipeline. Also, according to the application, PPLP is an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Plains All American Pipeline, L.P., a Delaware Limited Partnership. PPLP has, in written correspondence to the PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 68879 Department of State, committed to abide by the relevant terms and conditions of the permit previously issued by the Department to Chevron. Further, PPLP indicates in that correspondence that there have been no substantial changes in the operations of the Juarez pipeline from those originally authorized by the Department and further states that the future operation of the pipeline will remain essentially unchanged from that previously permitted. Therefore, in accordance with 22 CFR 161.7(b) (3) and the Department’s Procedures for Issuance of a Presidential Permit Where There Has Been a Transfer of the Underlying Facility, Bridge or Border Crossing for Land Transportation (70 FR 30990, May 31, 2005), the Department of State does not intend to conduct an environmental review of the application unless information is brought to its attention that the transfer potentially would have a significant impact on the quality of the human environment. As required by E.O. 13337, the Department of State is circulating this application to concerned Federal agencies for comment. DATES: Interested parties are invited to submit, in duplicate, comments relative to this proposal on or before December 28, 2006 to Jeffrey Izzo, Office of International Energy and Commodities Policy, Department of State, Washington, DC 20520. The application and related documents that are part of the record to be considered by the Department of State in connection with this application are available for inspection in the Office of International Energy and Commodities Policy during normal business hours.
