Accordingly, when a municipal security Buy-In Position is not satisfied by a CNS allocation, the long member must have its Buy-In Position exited from CNS in order to be able to proceed under the MSRB rules, which entail issuing a new buy-in notice and then waiting an additional ten days before executing the buy-in. As a result, members typically ask NSCC to exit the municipal security Buy-In Position from CNS after they issue a Buy-In Notice to CNS. NSCC then submits manual instructions that produce receive and deliver obligations to the affected parties two days after the notice is issued.3 To assist members in their timely processing of buy-ins in municipal securities, NSCC proposes to modify its rules and procedures to automatically exit from CNS the Buy-In Position of a long member that has submitted a BuyIn Notice in a municipal security. CNS will automatically exit such position prior to the night cycle on N+1, creating a broker-to-broker close-out receive and deliver obligation between the long member and the oldest short member(s). The net result will be that the Buy-In Position will be automatically exited from CNS one day earlier than is currently the case, which will allow the buy-in process to commence one day earlier. NSCC plans to implement these changes as soon as practicable after the Commission’s approval of this filing. NSCC will advise its members of the implementation through an Important Notice. NSCC believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 17A of the Act 4 and the rules and regulations thereunder because it should result in municipal securities buy-ins being executed more expeditiously thereby fostering cooperation and coordination with persons engaged in the clearance and settlement of securities transactions and removing impediments to and perfecting the mechanism of a national system for the prompt and accurate clearance and settlement of securities transactions.

The changes to Article XII, Section 3 that are the subject of this proposed rule change are made solely to track the changes proposed to be made to Article VI, Section 11A and are intended to ensure that adjustments to stock options and to stock futures made for stock dividends, stock distributions, and stock splits will remain consistent with respect to an underlying security. As noted above, the central purpose of the rule change proposed in SR–OCC– 2006–01 is to eliminate inequities which result from certain rounding practices currently required by OCC’s By-Laws because stock option strike prices are quoted in and therefore rounded to the nearest one-eighth. Stock futures do not have the same issue because they are quoted in decimals. Nevertheless, in order to ensure adjustments for stock options and for stock futures remain consistent, OCC proposes to revise the adjustment rules with respect to stock futures to match the proposed revised adjustment rules with respect to stock options for stock dividends, stock distributions, and stock splits. OCC will not implement the proposed rule change described herein until implementation of SR–OCC–2006–01.

(B), and (C) below, of the most significant aspects of these 
statements.\3\

    \3\ The Commission has modified the text of the summaries 
prepared by OCC.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    On January 12, 2006, OCC filed with the Commission proposed rule 
change SR-OCC-2006-01. Pursuant to SR-OCC-2006-01, OCC proposed, among 
other things, to amend its adjustment rules in Article VI, Section 11A 
for stock option contracts with respect to stock dividends, stock 
distributions, and stock splits. Subject to the Commission approving 
proposed rule change SR-OCC-2006-01, OCC is proposing to amend Article 
XII, Section 3 to ensure stock futures contracts can be adjusted in a 
manner consistent with adjustments made to stock option contracts on 
the same underlying security.
    As described in proposed rule change SR-OCC-2006-01, OCC desires to 
change certain of its adjustment rules with respect to stock option 
contracts to eliminate the need to round strike prices and/or units of 
trading in the event of certain stock dividends, stock distributions, 
and stock splits.\4\ The adjustment rules for stock futures as 
currently provided in Article XII, Section 3 parallel the current 
adjustment rules for stock options provided in Article VI, Section 11A. 
This uniformity ensures stock futures contracts can be adjusted in a 
manner consistent with adjustments made to stock option contracts on 
the same underlying security. The changes to Article XII, Section 3 
that are the subject of this proposed rule change are made solely to 
track the changes proposed to be made to Article VI, Section 11A and 
are intended to ensure that adjustments to stock options and to stock 
futures made for stock dividends, stock distributions, and stock splits 
will remain consistent with respect to an underlying security.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ The notice for SR-OCC-2006-01 describes OCC's proposed 
changes to and the rationale for the proposed rule change to its 
adjustment rules for stock options.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As noted above, the central purpose of the rule change proposed in 
SR-OCC-2006-01 is to eliminate inequities which result from certain 
rounding practices currently required by OCC's By-Laws because stock 
option strike prices are quoted in and therefore rounded to the nearest 
one-eighth. Stock futures do not have the same issue because they are 
quoted in decimals. Nevertheless, in order to ensure adjustments for 
stock options and for stock futures remain consistent, OCC proposes to 
revise the adjustment rules with respect to stock futures to match the 
proposed revised adjustment rules with respect to stock options for 
stock dividends, stock distributions, and stock splits.
    OCC will not implement the proposed rule change described herein 
until implementation of SR-OCC-2006-01. In the event any amendments are 
made to SR-OCC-2006-01, OCC would seek approval for conforming parallel 
changes to this proposed rule change.
    OCC believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the 
requirements of Section 17A of the Act \5\ and the rules and 
regulations thereunder applicable to OCC because it is intended solely 
to keep the adjustment rules for stock futures with respect to stock 
dividends, stock distributions, and stock splits consistent with the 
adjustment rules for stock options with respect to stock dividends, 
stock distributions, and stock splits and thus should protect 
investors.

burden on competition.

the Commission will:
