Download as PDF 61192 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 208 / Monday, October 29, 2007 / Notices signature of the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the Main Parade EA as well as the International Center to End Violence (Building 100) FONSI as these proposed actions are consistent with the PTMP, are independently justified, do not involve significant impacts, and would not prejudice other decisions on the Main Post. Alternatives to be considered for analysis in the supplemental EIS include the planning concept set forth in the PTMP for the Main Post (PTMP action), an updated planning concept for the Main Post based on new information arising after the PTMP (proposed action), and minimal planning (no action). Potential impacts to be evaluated in the supplemental EIS include those on parking and traffic, visual resources, those to the National Historic Landmark district, and cumulative impacts. Compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act will be a component of the supplemental EIS utilizing the public input, alternatives development and assessment processes to address historic preservation requirements. The availability of the draft supplemental EIS (expected to occur in mid 2008) for comment will be announced through an EPA-published notice in the Federal Register, through postings on the Trust’s Web site at http://www.presidio.gov and regular electronic newsletter (Presidio E-news), as well as direct mailing to the project mailing list and other appropriate means.

Title and Purpose of information collection: Financial Disclosure Statement: OMB 3220–0127 Under Section 10 of the Railroad Retirement Act and Section 2(d) of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act, the RRB may recover overpayments of annuities, pensions, death benefits, unemployment benefits, and sickness benefits that were made erroneously. An overpayment may be waived if the beneficiary was not at fault in causing the overpayment and recovery would cause financial hardship. The regulations for the recovery and waiver of erroneous payments are contained in 20 CFR parts 255 and 340. The RRB utilizes Form DR–423, Financial Disclosure Statement, to obtain information about the overpaid beneficiary’s income, debts, and expenses if that person indicates that (s)he cannot make restitution for the overpayment. The information is used to determine if the overpayment should be waived as wholly or partially uncollectible. If waiver is denied, the information is used to determine the size and frequency of installment payments. The beneficiary is made aware of the overpayment by letter and is offered a variety of methods for recovery. One response is requested of each respondent. Completion is voluntary. However, failure to provide the requested information may result in a denial of the waiver request. The RRB proposes to revise Form DR–423 to delete items requesting the railroad employee’s Social Security Number and their spouses Social Security Number. Non-burden impacting formatting and editorial changes are also proposed.

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 June 20, 2007, The New York Stock Exchange LLC (‘‘NYSE’’ 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 NYSE. On September 27, 2007, NYSE 1 15 2 17 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4.

I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of the Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange is filing this proposed rule change to amend NYSE Rule 342.13 (‘‘Acceptability of Supervisors’’) to eliminate the current requirement in that rule that the General Securities Principal Examination (‘‘Series 24 Examination’’) be passed after July 1, 2001 in order to be recognized by the Exchange as an acceptable alternative to the General Securities Sales Supervisor Qualification Examination (‘‘Series 9/10 Examination’’). The text of the proposed rule change is available on NYSE’s Web site (http://www.nyse.com), at NYSE, 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, NYSE 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. NYSE has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. 3 Amendment No. 1 replaced and superseded the original filing in its entirety. 4 Amendment No. 2 replaced and superseded Amendment No. 1 in its entirety.

Purpose Rule 342 (‘‘Offices—Approval, Supervision and Control’’) prescribes the Exchange’s general supervisory requirements for member organizations. Among these requirements, Rule 342.13 (‘‘Acceptability of Supervisors’’) prescribes the Exchange’s qualification standards for personnel delegated supervisory responsibility. Prior to 2001, this provision provided, in part, that a person delegated supervisory responsibility must pass the General Securities Sales Supervisor Qualification Examination (‘‘Series 9/10 Examination’’) or an historical equivalent (e.g., the Series 8 Examination). In 2002, the Exchange amended Rule 342.13 5 to recognize the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. (‘‘NASD’’)’s 6 General Securities Principal Examination (‘‘Series 24 Examination’’), if taken and passed after July 1, 2001, as an alternative to the Series 9/10 Examination requirement for persons whose duties do not include supervision of options or municipal securities sales activities.7 When proposing this amendment, the Exchange represented that NASD, as of July 2, 2001, had enhanced the Series 24 Examination by including test questions sufficient to provide appropriate coverage of the NYSE Rules. The Commission approved the proposed rule change on October 17, 2002.8 5 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 46425 (August 28, 2002), 67 56863 (September 5, 2002) (SR–NYSE–2002–24). 6 NASD is now know as the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (‘‘FINRA’’). 7 The Series 24 Examination does not address these activities. 8 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 46631 (October 9, 2002), 67 FR 64187 (October 17, 2002) E:\FR\FM\29OCN1.SGM Continued 29OCN1
