Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) is soliciting comments on the collection of information summarized below. The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget for extension and approval. • Rule 19b–4 (17 CFR 240.19b–4) and Form 19b–4—Filings with respect to proposed rule changes by self-regulatory organizations. Section 19(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) (15 U.S.C. 78s(b)) requires each self-regulatory organization (‘‘SRO’’) to file with the Commission copies of any proposed rule, or any proposed change in, addition to, or deletion from the rules of such SRO. Rule 19b–4 (17 CFR 240.19b– 4) implements the requirements of Section 19(b) by requiring the SROs to file their proposed rule changes on Form 19b–4 and by clarifying which actions taken by SROs are deemed proposed rule changes and so must be filed pursuant to Section 19(b). The collection of information is designed to provide the Commission with the information necessary to determine, as required by the Act, whether the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act and the rules thereunder. The information is used to determine if the proposed rule change should be approved, disapproved, or if proceedings should be instituted to determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or disapproved. The respondents to the collection of information are self-regulatory organizations (as defined by the Act), including national securities exchanges, national securities associations, registered clearing agencies and the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board. Twenty-three respondents file an average total of 1,323 responses per year. Each response takes approximately 23.51 hours to complete. Thus, the estimated annual response burden is 31,105 hours. At an average cost per response of $6,945.64, the resultant total related cost of compliance for these respondents is $9,191,396.21 per year (1,323 responses × $6,945.64/response = $9,191,396.21).
