Download as PDF 34386 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 134 / Wednesday, July 15, 2009 / Notices Exchange Rule 1080(l). Customers who are on the contra-side of a trade involving Directed Orders would not be subject to a fee. Also, Complex Orders in index and foreign currency options would not be subject to this assessment, but will continue to be assessed the option transaction charges in effect on the Exchange for simple orders for all participants. The Exchange proposes this amendment in order to create incentives for specialists, SQTs and RSQTs that receive directed order flow to provide liquidity in Complex Orders sent to the Exchange for execution and to encourage directed order flow. Currently, the Exchange assesses an equity option transaction charge of $.08 per contract side for specialists and ROTs, including SQTs and RSQTs, on contracts executed electronically as part of a Complex Order in equity options. Market participants other than specialists and ROTs are assessed the applicable current equity option transaction charge. Complex Orders are currently assessed on a net debit/credit basis and are billed on a per contract side basis, regardless of the manner in which the order was delivered to the Exchange. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that its proposal to amend its schedule of fees is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act 13 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(4) of the Act 14 in particular, in that it is an equitable allocation of reasonable fees and other charges among Exchange members. Specifically, the Exchange believes that this proposal is equitable because it would apply evenly to specialists, SQTs and RSQTs transacting with Complex Orders sent to the Exchange for execution, in that any specialist, SQT or RSQT may act as a Directed Participant and receive the $.01 per contract fee. Also, the Exchange believes this proposal will increase liquidity in Complex Orders. sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES B.

The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) has determined, pursuant to section 421(b)(1) of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (the Trade Act) (19 U.S.C. 2451(b)(1)), that certain passenger vehicle and light truck tires 1 from the People’s Republic of China (China) are being imported into the United States in such increased quantities or under such conditions as to cause market disruption to the domestic producers of like or directly competitive products. Pursuant to section 421(h)(1) of the Trade Act, the United States Trade Representative (USTR) is publishing notice of proposed restrictions with respect to imports of Chinese tires.

The ITC Investigation and Section 421 Following receipt of a petition filed on April 20, 2009, by the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union (‘‘USW’’), the ITC instituted investigation No. TA–421–7, under section 421 of the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2451) to determine whether Chinese tires are being imported into the United States in such increased quantities or under such conditions as to cause or threaten to cause market disruption to the domestic producers of like or directly competitive products. The ITC made an affirmative market disruption determination on June 18, 2009, and transmitted a report on its determination, as well as its remedy proposals, to USTR on July 9, 2009. The views of the ITC, including its remedy proposals, and the ITC staff report, are available on the ITC’s Web site (http:// www.usitc.gov) and are contained in USITC Publication 4085 (July 2009), entitled ‘‘Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from China.’’ A copy of that publication can be obtained from the ITC after July 30, 2009, by e-mailing pubrequest@usitc.gov, calling (202) 205–2000, or writing to the Office of the Secretary, 500 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20436. Requests may also be faxed to (202) 205–2104. Following an affirmative determination by the ITC, and pursuant to Section 421(h) of the Trade Act, USTR is required to make a recommendation to the President concerning what action, if any, the President should take to remedy the market disruption. Within 15 days after receiving USTR’s recommendation, the President is required to provide import relief unless the President determines that providing such relief is not in the national economic interest of the United States or, in extraordinary cases, that taking action would cause serious harm to the national security of the United States. (Section 421(k).) Before making a recommendation, USTR is required to publish notice of any measures it may propose and provide an opportunity to comment. sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice of Proposed Measure and Opportunity for Public Comment Pursuant to Section 421 of the Trade Act of 1974: Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires From the People’s Republic of China AGENCY: Office of the United States Trade Representative.
