According to the proposal, MPL Orders will be exempted from credits that currently appear in the following sections of the Exchange’s Fee Schedule: NYSE ARCA MARKETPLACE: TRADE RELATED CHARGES, NYSE ARCA MARKETPLACE: MARKET MAKER FEES AND CHARGES, and the ETP Holder Transaction Credit and Market Data Revenue Sharing Credit under NYSE ARCA MARKETPLACE: OTHER FEES AND CHARGES. Consistent with the proposal to exempt MPL Orders from any credits, the Exchange will not assess fees to ETP Holders submitting MPL Orders for execution, as such orders shall not be viewed as removing liquidity from the NYSE Arca book. Secondly, consistent with the proposal to exempt Users submitting MPL Orders from any credits, the Exchange will not assess fees to Users submitting MPL Orders for execution, as such orders shall not be viewed as removing liquidity from the NYSE Arca book. Accordingly, MPL Orders will be exempted from fees that currently appear in the following sections of the Exchange’s Fee Schedule: NYSE ARCA MARKETPLACE: TRADE RELATED CHARGES and NYSE ARCA MARKETPLACE: MARKET MAKER FEES AND CHARGES. Finally, the Exchange proposes to amend the Fee Schedule to exempt Users from the $0.001 per share fee for any order routed to the New York Stock Exchange, L.L.C. (‘‘NYSE’’) if such order is for a security listed on the NYSE and is designated as a PSO. Accordingly, PSOs will be exempted from the $0.001 per share fee for orders routed outside the book to the NYSE that currently appears in the following section of the Exchange’s Fee Schedule: NYSE ARCA MARKETPLACE: TRADE RELATED CHARGES. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with section 6(b) of the Act 9 in general and furthers the objectives of section 6(b)(4) 10 in particular that it is intended to provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees, and other charges among its members and other persons using its facilities. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES B.

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

    In its filing with the Commission, NYSE Arca 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 
Exchange has prepared summaries set forth in sections A, B, and C below 
of the most significant aspects of such statements.

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

1. Purpose
    The Exchange proposes to amend its Fee Schedule as it applies to 
Users submitting any order that is designated as either an MPL Order or 
PSO.
    First, with the adoption of the MPL Order and the changes to the 
Fee Schedule proposed herein, any order designated as an MPL Order 
shall not be eligible for a per share credit, if such order executes 
against an incoming marketable order, regardless of order

[[Page 49342]]

type. According to the proposal, MPL Orders will be exempted from 
credits that currently appear in the following sections of the 
Exchange's Fee Schedule: NYSE ARCA MARKETPLACE: TRADE RELATED CHARGES, 
NYSE ARCA MARKETPLACE: MARKET MAKER FEES AND CHARGES, and the ETP 
Holder Transaction Credit and Market Data Revenue Sharing Credit under 
NYSE ARCA MARKETPLACE: OTHER FEES AND CHARGES. Consistent with the 
proposal to exempt MPL Orders from any credits, the Exchange will not 
assess fees to ETP Holders submitting MPL Orders for execution, as such 
orders shall not be viewed as removing liquidity from the NYSE Arca 
book.
    Secondly, consistent with the proposal to exempt Users submitting 
MPL Orders from any credits, the Exchange will not assess fees to Users 
submitting MPL Orders for execution, as such orders shall not be viewed 
as removing liquidity from the NYSE Arca book. Accordingly, MPL Orders 
will be exempted from fees that currently appear in the following 
sections of the Exchange's Fee Schedule: NYSE ARCA MARKETPLACE: TRADE 
RELATED CHARGES and NYSE ARCA MARKETPLACE: MARKET MAKER FEES AND 
CHARGES.
    Finally, the Exchange proposes to amend the Fee Schedule to exempt 
Users from the $0.001 per share fee for any order routed to the New 
York Stock Exchange, L.L.C. (``NYSE'') if such order is for a security 
listed on the NYSE and is designated as a PSO. Accordingly, PSOs will 
be exempted from the $0.001 per share fee for orders routed outside the 
book to the NYSE that currently appears in the following section of the 
Exchange's Fee Schedule: NYSE ARCA MARKETPLACE: TRADE RELATED CHARGES.
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with 
section 6(b) of the Act \9\ in general and furthers the objectives of 
section 6(b)(4) \10\ in particular that it is intended to provide for 
the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees, and other charges 
among its members and other persons using its facilities.

    \9\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b).
    \10\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(4).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    The Exchange 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

    Written comments on the proposed rule change were neither solicited 
nor received.

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

    The foregoing proposed rule change is subject to section 
19(b)(3)(A)(ii) of the Act \11\ and subparagraph (f)(2) of Rule 19b-4 
thereunder \12\ because it establishes or changes a due, fee, or other 
charge applicable only to a member imposed by a self-regulatory 
organization. Accordingly, the proposal is effective upon Commission 
receipt of the filing. At any time within 60 days of the filing of the 
proposed rule change, the Commission may summarily abrogate such 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.
