Commission’s Findings and Order Granting Accelerated Approval of the Proposed Rule Change After careful consideration, 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 national securities exchange.8 In particular, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with section 6(b)(5) of the Act,9 which requires that the rules of an exchange be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to remove impediments to and 8 In approving this rule change, the Commission notes that it has considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 U.S.C. 78c(f). 9 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5). VerDate Aug<31>2005 21:48 Nov 15, 2007 Jkt 214001 perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. The proposal is narrowly tailored to address the circumstances where an equity option class is currently ineligible for initial listing on the Exchange even though it meets the Exchange’s continued listing standards and is trading on another options exchange. Allowing CBOE to list and trade options on such underlying securities should help promote competition among the exchanges that list and trade options. The Commission notes, and the Exchange represents, that the procedures that the Exchange currently employs to determine whether a particular underlying security meets the initial equity option listing criteria for the Exchange will similarly be applied when determining whether an underlying security meets the Exchange’s continued listing criteria. The Commission finds good cause, pursuant to section 19(b)(2)(B) of the Act,10 for approving the proposed rule change prior to the 30th day after the publication of the notice of the filing thereof in the Federal Register. The Commission notes that the proposed rule change is substantially identical to the proposed rule change submitted by the American Stock Exchange LLC,11 which was previously approved by the Commission after an opportunity for notice and comment, and therefore does not raise any new regulatory issues. V. Conclusion It is therefore ordered, pursuant to section 19(b)(2) of the Act,12 that the proposed rule change (SR–CBOE–2007– 114), as amended, be, and it hereby is, approved on an accelerated basis. For the Commission, by the Division of Market Regulation, pursuant to delegated authority.13 Nancy M. Morris, Secretary. [FR Doc.

ACTION: Notice; solicitation of applications. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice solicits applications for the truck parking initiative for which funding is available under section 1305 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU). SAFETEA–LU directed the Secretary to establish a pilot program to address the shortage of long-term parking for commercial motor vehicles on the National Highway System. States, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) and local governments are eligible for the funding available for fiscal years (FY) 2006– 2009. Section 1305 allows for a wide range of eligible projects, ranging from construction of spaces and other capital improvements to using intelligent transportation systems (ITS) technology to increase information on the availability of both public and private commercial vehicle parking spaces. For purposes of this program, long-term parking is defined as parking available for 10 or more consecutive hours. DATES: Applications must be received by the FHWA Division Office no later than February 14, 2008. ADDRESSES: The FHWA Division Office locations can be found at the following URL: http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ field.html#fieldsites. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Michael P.

I. Background The Truck Parking Initiative furthers the goals of the Department of Transportation’s new National Strategy to Reduce Congestion on America’s Transportation Network, announced on May 16, 2006.1 By creating a program that provides funds to address long-term truck parking on the National Highway System, the Department anticipates that commercial motor vehicles will be better able to plan rest stops and better time their transit or loading/unloading within urban areas, thereby reducing the urban area’s congestion. The shortage of long-term truck parking on the National Highway System (NHS) is a problem that needs to be addressed. The 2002 FHWA Report ‘‘Study of Adequacy of Parking Facilities’’ 2 indicated that while truck parking shortages are either non-existent or corridor-specific in some States, severe and pervasive shortages exist in some States and regions. The report recommendations include expansion or improvement of public rest areas; expansion or improvement of commercial truck stops and travel plazas; use of public-private partnerships; educating or informing drivers about available spaces; and changing current parking rules. This lack of available parking not only adds to congestion in urban areas, but also may affect safety by reducing the opportunities for drivers to obtain rest needed to comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, Hours 1 Speaking before the National Retail Federation’s annual conference on May 16, 2006, in Washington, D.C., former U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta unveiled a new plan to reduce congestion plaguing America’s roads, rail, and airports. The National Strategy to Reduce Congestion on America’s Transportation Network includes a number of initiatives designed to reduce transportation congestion. The transcript of these remarks is available at the following URL: http:// dot.gov/minetasp051606.htm. 2 A copy of this document is available at http://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/media/repctoc.htm.
