Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 196 / Tuesday, October 13, 2009 / Notices limited compensation for system malfunctions.4 2. Statutory Basis Nasdaq believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the provisions of Section 6 of the Act,5 in general, and with Sections 6(b)(5) of the Act,6 in particular, in that the proposal is designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination with persons engaged in regulating, clearing, settling, processing information with respect to, and facilitating transactions in securities, 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. As Nasdaq analyzes total eligible liability claims on a per-month look-back basis, the proposal, in effect, would allow Nasdaq an increased capability to compensate a market participant(s) up to the monthly cap of $500,000 even though the losses occurred on a single day or were across multiple days for a single participant. The expansion of time to make such compensation claims likewise increases the ability of market participants to submit claims in a timely manner. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will result in any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Availability of Documents You can get an electronic copy of this notice and all other documents in this docket using the Internet by: (1) Searching the Federal eRulemaking portal (http:// www.regulations.gov/search); (2) Visiting the FAA’s Regulations and Policies web page at http:// www.faa.gov/regulations_policies. Background Order 5190.6, Airport Compliance Requirements, was issued on August 24, 1973. Order 5190.6 was cancelled and replaced by Order 5190.6A, Airport Compliance Requirements, on October 2, 1989. Each of these orders, while it was in effect, served as the handbook or manual for FAA employees responsible for monitoring and enforcing the compliance of airport operators with obligations to the federal government. Those obligations most commonly arise from conditions, or assurances, contained in agreements with the FAA for grants in aid to airports, and from the terms in deeds of property transferred by the federal government for airport use. The current FAA airport grant program is the Airport Improvement Program (AIP), established by the Airport and Airway Improvement Act of 1982 as amended, 49 U.S.C. 47101 et seq. (AAIA). Section 47107 requires the Secretary of Transportation to obtain certain assurances from an airport operator as a condition of receiving a grant under the AIP. The FAA implements this requirement with a standard set of grant assurances for airport sponsors, which can be viewed on the FAA Airports Web site at: http:// www.faa.gov/airports/aip/ grant_assurances/. An airport operator may also have Federal obligations under a deed of property transferred under the Surplus Property Act of 1944, as amended, 49 U.S.C. 47151–47153, or the Federal Airports Act of 1946, as amended, 49 U.S.C. 47125. Since 1989, there have been substantial changes to the laws and policies relating to the Federal obligations of airport operators, and also changes to the procedures for investigating and resolving complaints E:\FR\FM\13OCN1.SGM 13OCN1
