This will essentially lower their fees from $5,000 per month to $60 per month per individual and device. In addition, the ‘‘Subscriber’’ metric should reduce administrative costs, as it should simplify the processes of counting customer entitlements and reporting. The introduction of the proposed nonprofessional Subscriber Fee, subject to the monthly Maximum Amount payable, will respond to the growing demand from broker-dealers to provide depth-of-book information to their account-holding customers. It will lower the fees payable for NYSE OpenBook data in respect of nonprofessional Subscribers from $60 per month per individual and device to $15 per month per individual and device. The Exchange believes that the nonprofessional Subscriber Fee reflects an equitable allocation of its overall costs to users of its facilities. The Exchange believes that the proposed fee and the Maximum Amount are fair and reasonable and that it is fair and reasonable to charge nonprofessional subscribers lower rates than their professional subscriber counterparts. (j) Contracts. The Exchange will require each nonprofessional Subscriber that receives NYSE OpenBook Realtime or NYSE OpenBook Ultra from a vendor, broker-dealer or other entity to enter into the Network A nonprofessional subscriber agreement or an agreement that incorporates the essential terms of the nonprofessional subscriber agreement.14 2.

In the Matter of the Review of the Designation of Mujahedin-e 
Khalq Organization (MEK), and All Designated Aliases, as a Foreign 
Terrorist Organization Upon Petition Filed Pursuant to Section 219 of 
the Immigration and Nationality Act, as Amended

    The MEK filed a petition for revocation of its designation as a 
foreign terrorist organization (the ``Petition''). Based upon a review 
of the Administrative Record assembled in this matter, including the 
Petition and associated filings by the MEK, pursuant to Section 
219(a)(4)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as amended (8 
U.S.C. 1189(a)(4)(B)) (``INA''), and in consultation with the Attorney 
General and the Secretary of the Treasury, I conclude that the 
circumstances that were the basis for the 2003 re-designation of the 
aforementioned organization as a

[[Page 1274]]

foreign terrorist organization have not changed in such a manner as to 
warrant revocation of the designation and that the national security of 
the United States does not warrant a revocation.
    Therefore, I hereby determine that the designation of the 
aforementioned organization as a foreign terrorist organization, 
pursuant to Section 219 of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1189), shall be 
maintained.
    This determination shall be published in the Federal Register.
