Introduction On June 27, 2007,1 the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, Inc., n/k/a NASDAQ OMX PHLX, Inc., (‘‘Phlx’’ or the ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) pursuant to Rule 0–12 2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Exchange Act’’) an application for an exemption under Section 36(a)(1) of the Exchange Act 3 from the rule filing requirements of Section 19(b) of the Exchange Act 4 with respect to certain margin rules of other selfregulatory organizations (‘‘SROs’’) that the Exchange seeks to incorporate by reference. II. Application for Section 36 Exemption From Section 19(b) Rule Filing Requirements for SRO Rules Incorporated by Reference On August 11, 2008, the Commission approved a proposed rule change—SRPhlx–2007–33—which, among other things, permits Phlx members to elect to be bound by the margin rules of either the New York Stock Exchange LLC (‘‘NYSE’’) or the Chicago Board Options 1 See Letter from Edith H. Hallahan, Esq., Senior Vice President and Deputy General Counsel, Phlx, to Nancy M. Morris, Secretary, Commission, dated June 26, 2007. 2 17 CFR 240.0–12. 3 15 U.S.C. 78mm(a)(1). 4 15 U.S.C. 78s(b).

On June 26, 2007, Phlx submitted a formal request, pursuant to Rule 0–12 under the Exchange Act,7 seeking an exemption under Section 36 of the Exchange Act from the rule filing procedures of Section 19(b) of the Exchange Act with respect to changes to the margin rules of either the NYSE or CBOE.8 III. Order Granting Section 36 Exemption Section 36 of the Exchange Act 9 authorizes the Commission to conditionally or unconditionally exempt any person, security, or transaction, or any class thereof, from any provision of the Exchange Act or rule thereunder, if necessary or appropriate in the public interest and consistent with the protection of investors. The Commission believes that it is appropriate to issue exemptions, subject to the conditions described below, to allow SROs to incorporate by reference the rules of other SROs without being subject to the rule filing requirements of Section 19(b) of the Exchange Act whenever the SRO’s rules that are incorporated by reference change. Such exemptions promote efficient use of Commission and SRO resources by avoiding duplicative rule filings based on simultaneous changes to identical rule text sought by more than one SRO. The Commission will consider granting requests for exemption, pursuant to Section 36 of the Exchange Act, from the rule filing requirements imposed by Section 19(b) of the Exchange Act, provided that:10 5 See Exchange Act Release 58340, 73 FR 48268 (August 18, 2008). 6 Exchange Act Release No. 58340 (August 11, 2008); see also Exchange Act Release No. 58045 (June 26, 2008), 73 FR 38487 (July 7, 2008) (SRPhlx–2007–33). 7 See 17 CFR 240.0–12. 8 See Letter from Edith H.
