Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 142 / Wednesday, July 25, 2007 / Notices become operative prior to 30 days after the date of filing. However, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)(iii) 13 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 period. The Commission believes that waiver of the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, because the proposal would allow the pilots to continue without interruption until July 18, 2008.14 For this reason, the Commission designates the proposal to be operative upon filing with the Commission. At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission may summarily abrogate such proposed 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.15 IV.

Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on July 2, 2007, the International Securities Exchange, LLC (‘‘ISE’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II and III below, which Items have been substantially prepared by the Exchange.

The purpose of this proposed rule change is to add a clarifying sentence to the Schedule of Fees to resolve an ambiguity with respect to fees charged to MidPoint Match executions. The Exchange currently waives fees in the circumstances where the same Member enters MidPoint Match orders that execute against each other in the MidPoint Match System. Additionally, the Exchange offers discounted fees based on a Member’s average daily volume (‘‘ADV’’) via a tiered schedule that provides increased discounts as a Member’s ADV increases. The Exchange proposes to add a sentence clarifying that transactions for which fees are waived do not count towards the ADV discounts and do not accrue market data revenue. 2. Statutory Basis The basis under the Act for this proposed rule change is the requirement under section 6(b)(4) 3 that the Exchange provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees, and other charges 1 15 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3 15 E:\FR\FM\25JYN1.SGM U.S.C. 78f(b)(4). 25JYN1 40912 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 142 / Wednesday, July 25, 2007 / Notices among its members and issuers and other persons using its facilities.

Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action The foregoing proposed rule change has become effective pursuant to section 19(b)(3)(A)(ii) of the Act 4 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(2) thereunder,5 because it establishes or changes a due, fee, or other charge imposed by the Exchange. Accordingly, the proposal will take effect upon filing with the Commission.
