The information collected is matched against records of the railroad employee that are maintained by the RRB. If the information is verified, the request is approved and the RRB mails a Password Request Code (PRC) to the requestor. If the information provided cannot be verified, the requestor is advised to contact the nearest field office of the RRB to resolve the discrepancy. Once a PRC is obtained from the RRB, the requestor can apply for a PIN/Password online. Once the PIN/Password has been established, the requestor has access to RRB Internet-based services. The RRB estimates that approximately 9,613 requests for PRCs and 9,613 PIN/ Passwords are received annually and that it takes 5 minutes per response to secure a PRC and 1.5 minutes to establish a PIN/Password. Two responses are requested of each respondent and completion is voluntary.

Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that, on May 17, 2011, NYSE Arca, Inc. (‘‘NYSE Arca’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule 2 17 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:12 May 24, 2011 I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to adopt Commentary .12 to NYSE Arca Rule 6.4 to permit the listing of additional expiration months if such expiration months are listed on another exchange. The text of the proposed rule change is available at the Exchange’s principal office, at http://www.nyse.com, at the Commission’s Public Reference Room, and at the Commission’s Web site at http://www.sec.gov. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the self-regulatory organization included statements concerning the purpose of, and basis for, the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of those statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant parts of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change [FR Doc. 2011–12904 Filed 5–24–11; 8:45 am] 1 15 change as described in Items I and II below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. 1. Purpose The purpose of this proposed rule change is to permit the Exchange to list additional expiration months if such expiration months are listed on another exchange. This filing is based on a filing previously submitted by the International Securities Exchange LLC.3 Under current Rule 6.4(a), NYSE Arca usually will open four (4) expiration months for each type of option of a class of options open for trading on the Exchange: The first two (2) being the two nearest months, regardless of the quarterly cycle on which that class trades; the third and fourth month being the next two months of the quarterly cycle previously designated by the Exchange for the specific class. For example, if the Exchange listed in late September a new stock option on a January–April–July–October quarterly cycle, the Exchange would list the two 3 See Exchange Act Release No. 64343 (April 26, 2011) 76 FR 24546 (May 2, 2011). Jkt 223001 PO 00000 Frm 00107 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30409 nearest term months (October and November) and the next two expiration months of the cycle (January and April). Further, when the October series expire, the Exchange would add the December series as the next nearest month. And when the November series expire, the Exchange would add the July series as the next month of the cycle. In 2010, the Exchange established a pilot program to add up to two additional expiration months for each class of options opened for trading on the Exchange (the ‘‘Additional Expiration Months Pilot’’).4 Under the Additional Expiration Months Pilot, NYSE Arca lists expiration months that are considered ‘‘mid-month’’. For example, for options classes that have expiration months of October, November, February, and May, the Exchange lists the December and January series. The listing of additional expiration months has been well received by OTP Holders, and has had very limited impact on system resources. ISE recently submitted a filing in response to a filing by NASDAQ OMX PHLX, Inc. (‘‘PHLX’’).5 PHLX amended its rules so that it can open ‘‘at least one expiration month’’ for each class of standard options open for trading on that exchange. Consequently, while NYSE Arca is currently restricted to listing a limited number of expiration months that are permissible under its rules and the Additional Months Expiration Months Pilot, PHLX has the ability to list expiration months that NYSE Arca would not be able to list under its rules. Indeed, PHLX has listed additional expiration months that no other exchange could list at the time they were added (ISE listed matching series only on April 28, 2011, effective for trading April 29, 2011). For example, in January 2011, PHLX listed the October 2011 expiration in Omnicare, Inc. (ticker: OCR). Meanwhile, NYSE Arca could not list the October 2011 series under Rule 6.4(a) because the standard expiration months for OCR at the time were February, March, June, and September. NYSE Arca could not list the October 2011 series as part of the Additional Expiration Months Pilot because OCR is not one of the classes selected by the Exchange to participate in the Additional Expiration Months Pilot. As a result, PHLX was the only 4 See Exchange Act Release No. 63133 (October 19, 2010) 75 FR 65545 (October 25, 2010). 5 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 63700 (January 11, 2011) 76 FR 2931 (January 18, 2011) (SR–PHLX–2011–04). In its filing, PHLX cites to the Commission’s approval of the NASDAQ Options Market (‘‘NOM’’) and rules pertaining thereto as the basis for making the change to its rules. E:\FR\FM\25MYN1.SGM 25MYN1

RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD


Agency Forms Submitted for OMB Review, Request for Comments

    Summary: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. Chapter 35), the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) is forwarding 
an Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of Management and Budget (OMB). 
Our ICR describes the information we seek to collect from the public. 
Review and approval by OIRA ensures that we impose appropriate 
paperwork burdens.
    The RRB uses a Personal Identification Number (PIN)/Password system 
that allows RRB customers to conduct business with the agency 
electronically. As part of the system, the RRB collects information 
needed to establish a unique PIN/Password that allows customer access 
to RRB Internet-based services. The information collected is matched 
against records of the railroad employee that are maintained by the 
RRB. If the information is verified, the request is approved and the 
RRB mails a Password Request Code (PRC) to the requestor. If the 
information provided cannot be verified, the requestor is advised to 
contact the nearest field office of the RRB to resolve the discrepancy. 
Once a PRC is obtained from the RRB, the requestor can apply for a PIN/
Password online. Once the PIN/Password has been established, the 
requestor has access to RRB Internet-based services. The RRB estimates 
that approximately 9,613 requests for PRCs and 9,613 PIN/Passwords are 
received annually and that it takes 5 minutes per response to secure a 
PRC and 1.5 minutes to establish a PIN/Password. Two responses are 
requested of each respondent and completion is voluntary. However, the 
RRB will be unable to provide a PRC or allow a requestor to establish a 
PIN/Password (thereby denying system access), if the requests are not 
completed.
    The RRB invites comments on the proposed collection of information 
to determine (1) The practical utility of the collection; (2) the 
accuracy of the estimated burden of the collection; (3) ways to enhance 
the quality, utility, and clarity of the information that is the 
subject of collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of 
collections on respondents, including the use of automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments to the 
RRB or OIRA must contain the OMB control number of the ICR. For proper 
consideration of your comments, it is best if the RRB and OIRA receive 
them within 30 days of the publication date.
    Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the 
initial 60-day notice (76 FR 15351) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2) on 
March 21, 2011. That request elicited no comments.
