The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change, as amended, from interested persons. I.

The text of the proposed rule change is available on CBOE’s Web site (http://www.cboe.org/Legal), at the CBOE’s Office of the Secretary, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant parts of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change ebenthall on PROD1PC69 with NOTICES 1. Purpose The purpose of this rule change is to amend CBOE Rule 8.3 and Rule 8.4 in connection with CBOE’s determination to change the appointment cost for options on the Nasdaq-100 Index Tracking Stock (QQQQ). Presently, QQQQ options are classified as a Tier A+ option class and have an appointment cost of .25. CBOE proposes to remove QQQQ options from Tier A+ and, as a result, lower its appointment cost. As a Hybrid 2.0 Class, QQQQ options will fall within the appointment cost structure set forth in Rule 8.3(c)(i) and Rule 8.4(d), and based on its trading volume, be included in Tier A with an appointment cost of .10. CBOE notes that it re-evaluated the appointment cost for QQQQ options and determined to lower it in order to lower the cost of access to CBOE’s marketplace in this option class. 4 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:00 Aug 14, 2007 Jkt 211001 2. Statutory Basis Accordingly, CBOE believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act and the rules and regulations under the Act applicable to a national securities exchange and, in particular, the requirements of section 6(b) of the Act.5 Specifically, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Section 6(b)(5) 6 requirements that the rules of an exchange be designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition CBOE does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others The Exchange neither received nor solicited written comments on the proposal. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the foregoing rule does not (i) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, provided that the Exchange has given the Commission written notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change at least five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule change or such shorter time as designated by the Commission,7 the proposed rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 8 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder.9 Under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) of the Act,10 the proposal does not become operative for 30 days after the date of its filing, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the public 5 15 U.S.C. 78(f)(b).

The Commission agrees and, consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, has determined to waive the 30-day operative date so that the proposal may become operative upon filing.11 IV.

On May 9, 2007, the International Securities Exchange, LLC (the ‘‘Exchange’’ or the ‘‘ISE’’), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 a proposed rule change to remove certain ISE rules. On June 8, 2007, ISE filed Amendment No. 1 to the proposed rule change. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on June 27, 2007.3 The Commission received no comments on the proposal. The Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to a registered securities exchange.4 In particular, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,5 which requires, 12 17 CFR 200.30–3(a)(12). U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). 2 17 CFR 240.19b–4. 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 55936 (June 21, 2007), 72 FR 35276 (‘‘Notice’’). 4 In approving this proposal, the Commission considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition and capital formation. 15 U.S.C. 78c(f). 5 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5). ebenthall on PROD1PC69 with NOTICES 1 15 VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:41 Aug 14, 2007 Jkt 211001 among other things, that the Exchange’s rules be designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism for a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. The ISE proposes to remove Rule 403 (Nominal Employment), Rule 605 (Other Affiliations of Registered Persons), and Rule 615 (Addressing of Communications to Customers). The Exchange believes that the concern addressed by Rule 403, which prohibits members from obtaining business by employing a person in a nominal position, is adequately addressed in existing Rule 406, which limits gratuities.6 The Exchange also believes that Rule 605, which effectively prohibits registered persons of its members from engaging in outside business activities unless approved by the Exchange or the member’s designated examining authority, is no longer necessary given significant market structure changes.7 Lastly, the Exchange believes that Rule 615 is unnecessary as ISE members are also subject to ISE Rules 600 and 2114, which effectively require ISE members that do a public business to be registered with FINRA, and the Exchange believes that the FINRA rules pertaining to the customer communication policies for its members conducting a public business should sufficiently address the topic covered by Rule 615. The Commission therefore believes it is consistent with the Act for the Exchange to delete these rules. It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,8 that the proposed rule change (File No. SR–ISE– 2007–32), as modified by Amendment No. 1, be, and hereby is, approved. For the Commission, by the Division of Market Regulation, pursuant to delegated authority.9 Florence E. Harmon, Deputy Secretary. [FR Doc.

I. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Terms of Substance 
of the Proposed Rule Change

    CBOE proposes to amend its rules relating to the appointment cost 
for options on the Nasdaq-100 Index Tracking Stock. The text of the 
proposed rule change is available on CBOE's Web site (http://
www.cboe.org/Legal), at the CBOE's Office of the Secretary, and at the 
Commission's Public Reference Room.

II. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

    In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange included statements 
concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and 
discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The 
text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in 
Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in 
sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant parts of such 
statements.

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

1. Purpose
    The purpose of this rule change is to amend CBOE Rule 8.3 and Rule 
8.4 in connection with CBOE's determination to change the appointment 
cost for options on the Nasdaq-100 Index Tracking Stock (QQQQ). 
Presently, QQQQ options are classified as a Tier A+ option class and 
have an appointment cost of .25. CBOE proposes to remove QQQQ options 
from Tier A+ and, as a result, lower its appointment cost. As a Hybrid 
2.0 Class, QQQQ options will fall within the appointment cost structure 
set forth in Rule 8.3(c)(i) and Rule 8.4(d), and based on its trading 
volume, be included in Tier A with an appointment cost of .10. CBOE 
notes that it re-evaluated the appointment cost for QQQQ options and 
determined to lower it in order to lower the cost of access to CBOE's 
marketplace in this option class.
2. Statutory Basis
    Accordingly, CBOE believes the proposed rule change is consistent 
with the Act and the rules and regulations under the Act applicable to 
a national securities exchange and, in particular, the requirements of 
section 6(b) of the Act.\5\ Specifically, the Exchange believes the 
proposed rule change is consistent with the Section 6(b)(5) \6\ 
requirements that the rules of an exchange be designed to promote just 
and equitable principles of trade, to prevent fraudulent and 
manipulative acts and, in general, to protect investors and the public 
interest.

    \6\ 15 U.S.C. 78(f)(b)(5).

B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    CBOE does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any 
burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in 
furtherance of the purposes of the Act.

C. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Comments on the Proposed 
Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others

    The Exchange neither received nor solicited written comments on the 
proposal.

III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for 
Commission Action

    Because the foregoing rule does not (i) Significantly affect the 
protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any 
significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30 
days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the 
Commission may designate if consistent with the protection of investors 
and the public interest, provided that the Exchange has given the 
Commission written notice of its intent to file the proposed rule 
change at least five business days prior to the date of filing of the 
proposed rule change or such shorter time as designated by the 
Commission,\7\ the proposed rule change has become effective pursuant 
to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \8\ and Rule 19b-4(f)(6) 
thereunder.\9\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Under Rule 19b-4(f)(6) of the Act,\10\ the proposal does not become 
operative for 30 days after the date of its filing, or such shorter 
time as the Commission may designate if consistent with the protection 
of investors and the public interest. The Exchange has requested that 
the Commission waive the 30-day operative date, so that the proposal 
may take effect upon filing. The Exchange believes that the proposed 
rule change does not raise any new regulatory issues and promotes 
competition by reducing the access costs of trading in QQQQ options. 
The Commission agrees and, consistent with the protection of investors 
and the public interest, has determined to waive the 30-day operative 
date so that the proposal may become operative upon filing.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ Id.
    \11\ For purposes only of waiving the 30-day operative delay of 
this proposal, the Commission has considered the proposed rule's 
impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation. 15 U.S.C.
