Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Request and Comment Request, 17977-17978 [2011-7503]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 62 / Thursday, March 31, 2011 / Notices wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with NOTICES of the CBOE Audit Committee are fully duplicated by the CBOE Holdings Audit Committee. Further, the CBOE Regulatory Oversight Committee has broad authority to oversee the adequacy and effectiveness of CBOE’s regulatory responsibilities and is able to maintain oversight over internal controls in tandem with the CBOE Holdings Audit Committee. Accordingly, elimination of the CBOE Audit Committee should not impact the ability of the CBOE Board or the CBOE Regulatory Oversight Committee to maintain substantial and independent oversight of the Exchange’s regulatory program. Finally, the Commission finds that the proposed changes to the compositional requirements for the CBOE Board of Directors and Executive Committee are consistent with the Act. The Commission notes these proposed changes are designed to align CBOE’s compositional requirements with those of its affiliated exchange, which were previously approved by the Commission.24 In addition, the change is similar to the treatment of ‘‘Staff Governors’’ that the Commission previously approved for another selfregulatory organization.25 Though, as revised, the Executive Committee would not have 20% of its members that are elected by Permit Holders (as the Board is required to have), CBOE has represented that the role of its Executive Committee does not involve it routinely acting in place of the Board. Rather, CBOE represented that its Executive Committee generally does not make a decision unless there is a need for a CBOE Board-level decision between CBOE Board meetings due to the time sensitivity of the matter.26 In addition, in situations when the Executive Committee does make a decision between CBOE Board meetings, the CBOE Board is generally aware 60687 (September 18, 2009), 74 FR 49060 (September 25, 2009) (SR–Phlx–2009–59). 24 See C2 Approval Order, supra note 20, 74 FR at 66701–66702 (noting that ‘‘requirement that the number of Non-Industry Directors equal or exceed the number of Industry Directors on the Board is designed to assure the inclusion of a significant non-industry presence in the governance of the Exchange, which the Commission believes is a critical element in the Exchange’s ability to protect the public interest.’’). 25 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 44280 (May 8, 2001), 66 FR 26892 (May 15, 2001) (SR– NASD–2001–06)(approving amendment to NASD By-Laws to allow for the treatment of Staff Governors as ‘‘neutral’’ for purposes of Industry/ Non-Industry balancing on the NASD Board of Governors). 26 See Notice, supra note 4, 76 FR at 7613, n.6. VerDate Mar<15>2010 11:23 Mar 31, 2011 Jkt 223001 ahead of time of the potential that the Executive Committee may need to make the decision. The CBOE Board is fully informed of any decision made by the Executive Committee at its next meeting and can always decide to review that decision and take a different action.27 Accordingly, the CBOE Board, including the Representative Directors, will continue to have final say on any matter considered by the Executive Committee. IV. Conclusion It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,28 that the proposed rule change (SR–CBOE–2011– 010), as modified by Amendment No. 1, be, and hereby is, approved. For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.29 Cathy H Ahn, Deputy Secretary.
