The fact that the parties to such a trade end up fully hedged may contribute to the best execution of the orders and, in any event, participants continue to be governed by, among other things, their best execution responsibilities. The Exchange also believes that the proposed tied hedge procedures are fully consistent with the original design of Rule 6.49 which, as discussed above, was designed to eliminate the unfairness that can be associated with a solicited transaction and to encourage meaningful competition. The tied hedge procedures will keep in-crowd market participants on equal footing with solicited parties in a manner that minimizes all parties’ market risk while continuing to assure that orders are exposed in a meaningful way. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act 23 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act, in that it is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, remove impediments to and perfect the mechanisms of a free and open market and a national market system and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest, as it will improve the opportunities for an order to be exposed to a competitive auction and represent an improvement over the current rules and will keep in-crowd market participants on equal footing with solicited parties in a manner that minimizes all parties’ market risk while continuing to assure that orders are exposed in a meaningful way. sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES 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.

FTA also took into consideration the current status of previously funded TTP grantees. Because of the high demand, many applicants selected for funding will receive less funding than they requested, which enables FTA to support an increased number of meritorious applications. A total of 63 applications have been selected for funding. The projects provide $15 million to 61 tribes, for transit planning studies and/or operational planning ($250,000); startup projects for new transit service ($1.5 million); and for enhancements or expansion of existing transit services ($13.25 million).

NOTICE OF COMPUTER MATCHING PROGRAM, SSA WITH DHS

A. Participating Agencies:
    SSA and DHS.

B. PURPOSE OF THE MATCHING PROGRAM:
    The purpose of this matching program is to establish conditions, 
safeguards, and procedures for disclosure of information relating to 
aliens for matching purposes by DHS and us. DHS will disclose two 
separate data files through a computer matching operation for our use 
in making Federal benefit eligibility determinations for ``Aliens Who 
Leave the United States Voluntarily'' and ``Aliens Who are Removed from 
the United States.''

C. AUTHORITY FOR CONDUCTING THE MATCHING PROGRAM:
    Legal authority for this matching operation is the Social Security 
Act (Act), 42 U.S.C. 402(n), 1382(f) and 1382c(a)(1), and the 
Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1611 and 1612. Section 
1631(e)(1)(B) of the Act, requires us to verify declarations of 
applicants for and recipients of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) 
payments before making a determination of eligibility or payment 
amount. Section 1631(f) of the Act requires Federal agencies to provide 
us with information necessary to verify SSI eligibility or benefit 
amounts or to verify other information related to these determinations.
    In addition, section 202(n)(2) of the Act, specifies that the 
``Attorney General or the Secretary of Homeland Security notify the 
Commissioner of Social Security'' when certain individuals are removed 
under specified provisions of section 237(a) or under section 
212(a)(6)(A) of the INA.
    It is executed under the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, as 
amended by the CMPPA of 1988, and the regulations and guidance 
promulgated thereunder.

D. Categories of Records and Individuals Covered by Matching Program:

1. Aliens Who Leave the United States Voluntarily:
    The DHS identifies for us, aliens who leave the United States 
voluntarily by their Benefits Information System (BIS), DHS/USCIS-007. 
Our systems of records used in this portion of the matching program are 
the Master Files of Social Security Number (SSN) Holders and SSN 
Applications, also known as the NUMIDENT, SSA/OEEAS 60-0058 and the 
Supplemental Security Income Record and Special Veterans Benefits 
(SSIR/SVB), also known as the SSR, SSA/OASSIS 60-0103.
    BIS furnishes the alien's name, SSN, date of birth (DOB), alien 
identification number, (``A'' number), date of departure, and expected 
length of stay. To verify the SSN, BIS data will be matched against the 
names, DOB, and SSNs of our Numident and Alpha Index files. Verified 
SSNs will be stored and matched against the same elements in SSA's SSR 
files.
2. Aliens Who Are Removed From the United States:
    DHS identifies for us, aliens who are removed from the United 
States from their Removable Alien Records System (RARS) (DHS/ICE-011). 
Immigration and Customs Enforcement now maintains information on 
removed aliens in the Enforcement Integrated Database (EID). Our 
systems of records used in this portion of the matching program are the 
NUMIDENT, SSA/OEEAS 60-0058, the Master Beneficiary Record (MBR), SSA/
OEEAS 60-0090, and the SSR, SSA/OASSIS 60-0103. The Unverified Prisoner 
System (UPS) is now used to do a manual search of fallout cases where 
the Enumeration and Verification System is unable to locate an SSN for 
an alien deportee. New alien screens and software were created for 
those deported from the United States and made part of the UPS process. 
No changes were made to the function of the system.
    RARS, EID furnishes the names and aliases (if any) of those 
removed, SSN (if available), DOB, sex, country of birth, country to 
which removed, date of removal, the final removal charge code and DHS 
``A'' number. To verify the SSN, RARS data will be matched against 
SSA's Numident and Alpha-Index files (SSA/OEEAS 60-0058). Verified SSNs 
are matched against the existing MBR and SSR records to locate those 
removed (and their dependents or survivors, if any) who have already

claimed and are currently receiving RSDI and/or SSI benefits.

E. Inclusive Dates of the Matching Program:

    The matching program will become effective no sooner than 40 days 
after notice of thematching program is sent to Congress and OMB, or 30 
days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register, 
whichever date is later. The matching program will continue for 18 
months from the effective date and may be extended for an additional 12 
months thereafter, if certain conditions are met.
