The Exchange believes that the introduction of SSDOs will provide investors with the ability to invest in options that settle to a value that represents the accumulated dividend amounts paid by a specific issuer over a specified accrual period. This will protect investors and the public interest by allowing market participants to hedge against potential declines in dividend income from long positions in the underlying stocks, which can be significant over long holding periods. In addition, the Exchange understands that dividend options trade in the other-thecounter [sic] marketplace and believes that the introduction of SSDOs will attract order flow to the Exchange, increase the variety of listed options to investors, and provide a valuable hedging tool to investors. Similarly, the proposed rule change will permit market participants to trade SSDOs in an environment subject to exchangebased rules that provides price transparency and eliminates contraparty risk through the role of the OCC as issuer, thus removing impediments to a free and open market consistent with the Act. Finally, SSDOs will be subject to CBOE’s rules, regulations and oversight, which provide enhanced investor protection and market surveillance. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition CBOE does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES C.

[FR Doc. 2011–15073 Filed 6–16–11; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4710–06–P DEPARTMENT OF STATE [Public Notice 7504] Assistance to Southern Sudan and the United States Contribution to the Global Fund To Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) for Fiscal Year 2009 Department of State. Notice of a Waiver Determination under Section 202(d)(4)(A)(ii) of the United States Leadership against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act of 2003, as amended, for Fiscal Year 2009. AGENCY: ACTION: This is a notice of a waiver determination under Section 202(d)(4)(A)(ii) of the United States Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act of 2003, as amended by the Tom Lantos and Henry J. Hyde United States Global Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Reauthorization Act of 2008 (the Leadership Act). The Leadership Act requires that the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator withhold from the U.S. contribution to the Global Fund an amount equal to expenditures by the Global Fund in the previous fiscal year to governments of countries that have been determined to have repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism in accordance with section 6(j)(1) of the Export Administration Act of 1979 (50 U.S.C. App. 2405 (j)(1)) (the ‘‘6(j) list’’). The government of the Republic of Sudan is designated on the ‘‘6(j) list.’’ Thus, Global Fund expenditures to the Government of the Republic of Sudan trigger a withholding requirement from the U.S. contribution to the Global Fund, subject to the waiver authority provided for Global Fund expenditures in Southern Sudan. During FY 2008, $301,416 was provided to government entities in Southern Sudan under HIV/ AIDS grants, thus triggering a potential withholding requirement in this amount from the FY 2009 U.S. contribution to the Global Fund. These funds were used to support State HIV/AIDS Commissions SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00112 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 35507 in all ten southern Sudan states, provide needed financial support for project specialists, and meet other incurred expenses under HIV/AIDS grants. Under the Leadership Act, the President has authority to waive the withholding requirement for assistance overseen by the Southern Sudan Country Coordinating Mechanism (SSCCM) if such an action is justified by the national interest or for humanitarian reasons. This authority has been delegated to the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator. The United States places a high priority on ensuring appropriate disbursement and expenditure of foreign development and humanitarian funding. Following consultations with the relevant Congressional committees, the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator has determined waiver of the withholding requirement for assistance by the Global Fund to the Autonomous Government of Southern Sudan through the Global Fund SSCCM is justified for humanitarian reasons. The application of the withholding requirement of Section 202(d)(4)(A)(ii) of the Act is hereby waived with respect to such assistance, allowing for the additional contribution of $301,416 to the Global Fund from the FY 2009 appropriations for the U. S. contribution to the Global Fund. This notice of waiver determination is published in the Federal Register in compliance with Section 202(d)(4)(A)(ii) of the Leadership Act.
