Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 114 / Thursday, June 14, 2007 / Notices The Need for the Proposed Action The proposed action results from the purchase of Texas Genco’s parent company by NRG Energy, Inc. as approved by the NRC in January 2006. Environmental Impacts of the Proposed Action The NRC has completed its safety evaluation of the proposed action and concludes that: (1) There is a reasonable assurance that the health and safety of the public will not be endangered by operation in the proposed manner, (2) such activities will be conducted in compliance with the Commission’s regulations, and (3) the issuance of the amendments will not be inimical to the common defense and security or to the health and safety of the public. The details of the staff’s safety evaluation will be provided in the license amendments that will be issued as part of the letter to the licensee approving the license amendments. The proposed action will not significantly increase the probability or consequences of accidents. No changes are being made in the types of effluents that may be released off site. There is no significant increase in the amount of any effluent released off site. There is no significant increase in occupational or public radiation exposure. Therefore, there are no significant radiological environmental impacts associated with the proposed action. With regard to potential nonradiological impacts, the proposed action does not have a potential to affect any historic sites. It does not affect nonradiological plant effluents and has no other environmental impact. Therefore, there are no significant non-radiological environmental impacts associated with the proposed action. Accordingly, the NRC concludes that there are no significant environmental impacts associated with the proposed action. Environmental Impacts of the Alternatives to the Proposed Action Agencies and Persons Consulted In accordance with its stated policy, on June 8, 2007, the staff consulted with the Texas State Department of Health, regarding the environmental impact of the proposed action. The State official had no comments. Finding of No Significant Impact On the basis of the environmental assessment, the NRC concludes that the proposed action will not have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment. Accordingly, the NRC has determined not to prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed action. For further details with respect to the proposed action, see the licensee’s letter dated April 4, 2006. Documents may be examined, and/or copied for a fee, at the NRC’s Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, Public File Area O1 F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland.

Introduction Pursuant to Rule 611(d) 1 of Regulation NMS 2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Exchange Act’’), the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’), by order, may exempt from the provisions of Rule 611 of Regulation NMS (‘‘Rule 611’’ or ‘‘Rule’’), either unconditionally or on specified terms and conditions, any person, security, transaction, quotation, or order, or any class or classes of persons, securities, quotations, or orders, if the Commission determines that such exemption is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, and is consistent with the protection of investors.3 As discussed below, the Commission is exempting from Rule 611(a) certain transactions to correct bona fide errors in the execution of customer orders, subject to specified conditions discussed below. The exemption is designed to promote efficiency and the best execution of investor orders by allowing trading centers to correct bona fide errors in a manner consistent with their customers’ orders, without the trading centers incurring additional costs to meet the requirements of Rule 611(a). II. Background The Commission adopted Regulation NMS in June 2005.4 Rule 611 addresses intermarket trade-throughs of displayed quotations in NMS stocks. Rule 611(a)(1) requires a trading center to establish, maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures that are reasonably designed to prevent tradethroughs on that trading center of CFR 242.611(d). CFR 242.600 et seq. 3 See also 15 U.S.C. 78mm(a)(1) (providing general authority for the Commission to grant exemptions from provisions of the Exchange Act and rules thereunder). 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 51808 (June 9, 2005), 70 FR 37496 (June 29, 2005) (‘‘Regulation NMS Adopting Release’’). protected quotations in NMS stocks that do not fall within an exception set forth in the Rule. Rule 611(b)(6) provides an exception for a trade-through transaction effected by a trading center that simultaneously routes an intermarket sweep order (‘‘ISO’’) to execute against the full displayed size of any protected quotation in the NMS stock that was traded through. Rule 611(b)(5) provides an exception for a trade-through transaction that is an execution of an ISO. Finally, Rule 611(c) requires that the trading center, broker, or dealer responsible for the routing of an ISO take reasonable steps to establish that such order meets the definition of an ISO in Rule 600(b)(30).5 The Trading Committee of the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (‘‘SIFMA’’) has requested that the Commission exempt certain error correction transactions from Rule 611(a).6 According to the SIFMA Exemption Request, error correction transactions are the mechanism through which brokerdealers remedy the execution of customer orders that have been placed in error or mishandled due to an error involving any term of an order, including, for example, price, number of shares, identification of the security, or execution of a transaction on the wrong side of the market.7 In addition, the SIFMA Exemption Request noted that, given the high level of automation in today’s marketplace, errors often result from delays, outages, or other failures of communications systems used in the delivery or execution of an order. Broker-dealers typically remedy such bona fide errors by entering a subsequent trade on behalf of the customer on the correct terms of the original order. In the interim, however, the market prices for a security may have moved, and the subsequent error correction transaction may be effected at a price that is no longer within the national best protected bid and offer.8 According to the SIFMA Exemption Request, broker-dealers seeking to execute error corrections, if required to comply with Rule 611, would need to satisfy all better-priced protected quotations prior to effecting the error correction transaction.9 Although some error correction transactions that are ‘‘underwater’’ within the meaning of the stopped order exception in Rule 1 17 2 17 PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5 17 CFR 242.600(b)(30). to Nancy M.
