Waiver of Restriction on Assistance to the Central Government of Tajikistan, 39132-39133 [E9-18753]

Download as PDF 39132 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 149 / Wednesday, August 5, 2009 / Notices Currently, when a DMM fails to meet the affirmative quote obligations set forth in Rule 104(a)(1)(A)–NYSE Amex Equities, the Exchange’s only remedy is to bring a formal disciplinary proceeding pursuant to NYSE Amex Disciplinary Rule 476. This is the case whether or not the DMM has failed to meet its obligations once or many times and regardless of whether the DMM made a technical error or an intentional one. The Exchange believes that the current regulatory approach for dealing with DMM quoting obligations is too inflexible. The Exchange recognizes that DMMs may, for many reasons, fail to meet their affirmative quote obligations under Rule 104(a)(1)(A)–NYSE Amex Equities. In some circumstances, formal disciplinary measures in accordance with NYSE Amex Disciplinary Rule 476 are warranted. However, in other instances such a proceeding may be unwarranted, and the Exchange is of the view that the addition of Rule 104(a)(1)(A)–NYSE Amex Equities to the list of rule violations and fines under Disciplinary Rule 476A will provide a more flexible and appropriate tool to enforce potential failure by DMMs to adhere to the quoting requirements set forth in the Rule, while preserving the Exchange’s discretion to seek formal discipline under the appropriate circumstances. srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the proposed rule changes are consistent with, and further the objectives of, Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,12 in that they are designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. The proposed rule changes also further the objectives of Section 6(b)(6), in that they provide for appropriate discipline for violations of principles of the Act, the rules and regulations thereunder, and Exchange rules and regulations. The Exchange believes that the proposed rule changes will provide the Exchange with greater regulatory flexibility to enforce the DMM quoting requirements set forth in Rule 104(a)(1)(A)–NYSE Amex Equities in a more informal manner while also preserving the Exchange’s discretion to seek formal discipline for more serious transgressions as warranted. 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 The Exchange has filed the proposed rule change pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A)(iii) of the Act 13 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder.14 Because the proposed rule change does not: (i) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative prior to 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate, if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, the proposed rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act and Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii) thereunder. At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission may summarily abrogate such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. IV.
