OCC’s request presented novel and complex issues of jurisdiction and the Commission determined that an order exempting the trading and clearing of such instruments from pertinent requirements of the CEA may be appropriate. The Commission has reviewed the comments made in response to its proposal and the entire record in this matter and has determined to issue an order exempting the trading and clearing of these contracts from the CEA. Authority for this exemption is found in Section 4(c) of the CEA.6 DATES: Effective Date: June 5, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John C.
