Title and Purpose of Information Collection: Continuing Disability Report; OMB 3220–0187 BILLING CODE 3110–01–P RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD Proposed Collection; Comment Request SUMMARY: In accordance with the requirement of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 which provides opportunity for public comment on new or revised data collections, the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) will publish periodic summaries of proposed data collections. Under Section 2 of the Railroad Retirement Act, an annuity is not payable or is reduced for any month in which the annuitant works for a railroad or earns more than prescribed dollar amounts from either non-railroad employment or self-employment. Certain types of work may indicate an annuitant’s recovery from disability. The provisions relating to the reduction or non-payment of annuities by reasons of work and an annuitant’s recovery from disability for work are prescribed 53909 in 20 CFR 220.17–220.20. The RRB conducts continuing disability reviews (CDR) to determine whether annuitants continue to meet the disability requirements of the law. Provisions relating to when and how often the RRB conducts CDRs are prescribed in 20 CFR 220.186. Form G–254, Continuing Disability Report, is used by the RRB to develop information for CDR determinations, including determinations prompted by a report of work, return to railroad service, allegations of medical improvement, or routine disability callup. The RRB proposes revision of an existing item to clarify information regarding the circumstances surrounding a disabled annuitant’s selfemployment. Form G–254a, Continuing Disability Update Report, is used to help identify disability annuitants whose work activity and/or recent medical history warrants a more extensive review and thus completion of Form G–254. The RRB proposes no changes to Form G– 254a. One response is requested of each respondent to Form G–254 and G–254a. Completion is required to retain a benefit.

(‘‘BATS’’ or the ‘‘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 prepared by the Exchange. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the 1 15 2 17 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:38 Sep 16, 2008 Jkt 214001 The purpose of the proposed rule change is to provide an additional order type to Users of the Exchange. The proposed new order type is a ‘‘Modified Directed Intermarket Sweep Order’’ (‘‘Modified Directed ISO’’). A Modified Directed ISO is an order that bypasses the System and is immediately routed by the Exchange as an IOC ISO to an away trading center specified by the User for execution, provided that the away trading center must be displaying a Protected Quotation, as that term is defined in the Exchange’s rules. If the ISO is not executed in its entirety at the away trading center, the Modified Directed ISO returns to the Exchange as an IOC ISO and any portion not executed at the Exchange will be cancelled back to the User. It is the entering Member’s responsibility, not the Exchange’s responsibility, to comply with the requirements of Regulation NMS relating to Intermarket Sweep Orders. The Exchange believes that Modified Directed ISO’s will enhance order PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 execution opportunities for Exchange Users by allowing such Users to route ISOs to a specified trading center, and if not executed in whole or in part at such trading center, to have their orders filled as ISOs on the BATS book if there is available liquidity at the Exchange to fill the order. Accordingly, the addition of a Modified Directed ISO order type to BATS Rule 11.5 promotes just and equitable principles of trade, removes impediments to, and perfects the mechanism of, a free and open market and a national market system. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes the proposal is consistent with the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder that are applicable to a national securities exchange, and, in particular, with the requirements of Section 6(b).3 In particular, for the reasons described above, the proposed change is consistent with Section 6(b)(5) of the Act, because it would promote just and equitable principles of trade, remove impediments to, and perfect the mechanism of, a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, protect investors and the public interest. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change imposes any burden on competition. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants or Others No written comments were solicited or received. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Within 35 days of the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register or within such longer period (i) as the Commission may designate up to 90 days of such date if it finds such longer period to be appropriate and publishes its reasons for so finding, or (ii) as to which the Exchange consents, the Commission will: (A) by order approve such proposed rule change; or (B) institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be disapproved.
