ACTION: Notice of interest rates and assumptions. AGENCY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:00 Aug 14, 2007 Jkt 211001 SUMMARY: This notice informs the public of the interest rates and assumptions to be used under certain Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation regulations. These rates and assumptions are published elsewhere (or can be derived from rates published elsewhere), but are collected and published in this notice for the convenience of the public. Interest rates are also published on the PBGC’s Web site (http://www.pbgc.gov). DATES: The required interest rate for determining the variable-rate premium under part 4006 applies to premium payment years beginning in August 2007. The interest assumptions for performing multiemployer plan valuations following mass withdrawal under part 4281 apply to valuation dates occurring in September 2007.

Klion, Manager, Regulatory and Policy Division, Legislative and Regulatory Department, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, 1200 K Street, NW., Washington, DC 20005, 202–326– 4024. (TTY/TDD users may call the Federal relay service toll-free at 1–800– 877–8339 and ask to be connected to 202–326–4024.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Variable-Rate Premiums Section 4006(a)(3)(E)(iii)(II) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and § 4006.4(b)(1) of the PBGC’s regulation on Premium Rates (29 CFR part 4006) prescribe use of an assumed interest rate (the ‘‘required interest rate’’) in determining a single-employer plan’s variable-rate premium. Pursuant to the Pension Protection Act of 2006, for premium payment years beginning in 2006 or 2007, the required interest rate is the ‘‘applicable percentage’’ of the annual rate of interest determined by the Secretary of the Treasury on amounts invested conservatively in long-term investment grade corporate bonds for the month preceding the beginning of the plan year for which premiums are being paid (the ‘‘premium payment year’’). On February 2, 2007 (at 72 FR 4955), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) published final regulations containing updated mortality tables for determining current liability under section 412(l)(7) of the Code and section 302(d)(7) of ERISA for plan years beginning on or after January 1, 2007. As a result, in accordance with section 4006(a)(3)(E)(iii)(II) of ERISA, the ‘‘applicable percentage’’ to be used in determining the required interest rate for plan years beginning in 2007 is 100 percent. PO 00000 Frm 00112 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The required interest rate to be used in determining variable-rate premiums for premium payment years beginning in August 2007 is 6.33 percent (i.e., 100 percent of the 6.33 percent composite corporate bond rate for July 2007 as determined by the Treasury).

The interest assumptions applicable to valuation dates in September 2007 under part 4044 are contained in an amendment to part 4044 published elsewhere in today’s Federal Register. Tables showing the assumptions applicable to prior periods are codified in appendix B to 29 CFR part 4044. Issued in Washington, DC, on this 8th day of August 2007. Vincent K.

The Exchange has filed the proposal pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 3 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder,4 which renders the proposal effective upon filing with the Commission. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to amend Rule 520 (Options and Selling Agreements) in order to clarify reporting requirements. The text of the proposed rule change is available at Amex, the Commission’s Public Reference Room, and http://www.amex.com. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, Amex 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. Amex has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. A.

Because standardized options and corporate stock options are already subject to similar reporting requirements, via a prospectus or a registration statement, the Exchange believes it is redundant and needlessly burdensome to also require each member and member organization to submit reports to the Exchange under Rule 520 for standardized options and corporate stock options. The Exchange submits that the proposed amendment to Rule 520 will provide additional transparency and clarity to the Rule. Furthermore, the Exchange believes that the proposed amendment to Rule 520 will enable Amex standards to be more consistent with those of the New York Stock Exchange LLC (‘‘NYSE’’) 6 and the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, Inc. (‘‘Phlx’’),7 and therefore facilitate uniform application of the reporting requirements. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act,8 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,9 in particular, in that it is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and 5 The Commission notes that revised Rule 520 requires each member and member organization to report to the Exchange such information as may be required with respect to any substantial option relating to listed securities, or securities admitted to unlisted trading privileges on the Exchange, acquired over-the-counter, in which such member, member organization, or allied member therein is directly or indirectly interested or of which such member, member organization, or allied member has knowledge by reason of transactions executed by or through such member or organization. 6 See NYSE Rule 424. 7 See Phlx Rule 784. 8 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). 9 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).

    Further procedures. The Postal Reorganization Act requires that the
