Imposition of Category II Missile Sanctions Against Three North Korean Entities, 5881-5882 [E9-2175]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 20 / Monday, February 2, 2009 / Notices 2. Statutory Basis The proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) 4 of the Act in general and Section 6(b)(4) 5 of the Act, in particular, in that it provides for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees and other charges among its issuers and other persons using its facilities. The Exchange believes that temporarily reducing the Annual Fee for newly listed securities listed under Rule 5.2(j)(6) will provide an incentive for issuers to introduce and list more such products on the NYSE Arca Marketplace in 2009, thereby increasing competition among such products. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. 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 with respect to the proposed rule change. 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 self-regulatory organization consents, the Commission will: (A) By order approve the proposed rule change, or (B) Institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be disapproved.
