Purpose On September 1, 2007, the Exchange instituted a program to provide variable Liquidity Provision Payments to specialist firms.3 Liquidity Provision Payments are based on two revenue sources in NYSElisted securities (excluding exchange traded funds): (1) The Exchange’s share of market data revenue derived from quoting share; and (2) the Exchange’s transaction fee revenue. Under the transaction fee revenue portion of the LPPs, the Exchange distributes among the specialists each month a payment pool consisting of the Exchange’s NYSE-listed stock transaction revenue on matched volume (excluding crossing services) in both electronic and manually executed transactions. The pool size was initially set at 25% of the above-noted Exchange transaction revenue and the Exchange noted in the Initial LPP Filing that this percentage may change if the Exchange adjusts its pricing and/or based on other conditions such as specialist performance. The Exchange proposes to reset at 20% the percentage of Exchange transaction fee revenue allocated to the LPP payment pool for each of the three months in the three-month period commencing October 1, 2007. In January 2008, and each month thereafter, the percentage allocated will be 17%. 2.

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. 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 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 equity transaction fees, 
effective October 1, 2007. Member Organizations are currently charged a 
transaction fee of $.000275 per share on all equity transactions 
whether they are providing or taking liquidity. Under the proposed 
amendment, Member Organizations will no longer be charged a fee: (i) If 
they are posting liquidity \3\ on the NYSE and the applicable order is 
executed against an inbound order; (ii) for non-electronic agency 
transactions of at least 10,000 shares between floor brokers in the 
crowd; and (iii) for agency cross transactions of at least 10,000 
shares, i.e., a trade where a Member Organization has customer orders 
to buy and sell an equivalent amount of the same security. Member 
Organizations will be charged $.0008 per share when an executed order 
takes liquidity from the NYSE. Member organizations will be charged 
$.0004 per share (on both sides of the transaction) on: (i) Odd lot 
transactions (including the odd lot portion of partial round lots); 
(ii) at the opening and at the opening only orders; (iii) market at-
the-close and limit at-the-close orders; and (iv) non-electronic agency 
transactions of less than 10,000 shares between floor brokers in the 
crowd.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Including Percentage Orders (more commonly known as ``CAP 
orders''), as defined in Exchange Rule 13.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Equity transaction fees will be capped at $120 per side on all 
equity transactions.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Equity transaction fees are currently capped at $80 per side 
on all equity transactions.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange is also changing its routing fee (the fee it charges 
Member Organizations for transactions required under Regulation NMS to 
be routed to other markets) from $.0025 per share to $.0030 per share. 
The revised routing fee more closely corresponds to the actual costs 
the Exchange incurs in paying transaction fees to the other markets to 
which it routes orders. In addition, the routing fee will now apply to 
transactions where the related order is placed by a broker on the 
Exchange trading floor. The routing fee is not subject to the $120 fee 
cap per equity transaction.
    The Exchange's transaction fees and routing fee for Exchange-Traded 
Fund securities remain unchanged.
    The Exchange is also eliminating its booth fees \5\ and the $11,000 
per license annual trading floor regulatory fee charged to non-
specialist Member Organizations.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ Annual booth fees are currently $7,800 for the Blue Room and 
Extended Blue Room, $6,000 for the Main Room and Garage, and $2,400 
for the QT Room (Post Trade Processing Center).
    \6\ The trading floor regulatory fee is subject to a $50,000 
maximum per annum per Member Organization.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent 
with the objectives of Section 6 of the Act \7\ in general and furthers 
the objectives of Section 6(b)(4) of the Act \8\ in particular, in that 
it is designed to provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable 
dues, fees, and other charges among its members and other persons using 
its facilities.

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 were neither solicited nor received.
