Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and the Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The Exchange proposes to lower the default 4 rebate at the top of its fee schedule for adding liquidity in securities at or above $1.00 on EDGX from a rebate of $0.0023 per share to a rebate of $0.0021 per share. This change will also be reflected in the following added liquidity flags: Flags B, V, Y, 3, and 4. The Exchange notes that Members will still qualify for all tiered rebates, as discussed in Footnotes 1, 2, or 13 on the Exchange’s fee schedule.5 The Exchange proposes to increase the default rate for removing liquidity from EDGX in securities priced below $1 from 0.10% of the dollar value of the transaction to 0.30% of the dollar value of the transaction.6 As a result of the increase in rate, all flags that remove liquidity from the EDGX Book in securities priced less than $1.00 would be assessed a fee of 0.30% of the dollar value of the transaction. These include Flags N, W, 6, BB, MT, PI, PR, and ZR.7 For customer internalization, which occurs when two orders presented to the Exchange from the same Member (i.e., MPID) are presented separately and not in a paired manner, but nonetheless inadvertently match with one another,8 the Exchange currently charges $0.00035 per share per side of an execution (for adding liquidity and for removing liquidity) for Flags EA, ER, and 5. This charge occurs in lieu of the standard or tiered rebate/removal rates. Therefore, Members currently incur a total transaction cost of $0.0007 per share for both sides of an execution for customer internalization. In SR–EDGX–2011–13,9 the Exchange represented that it ‘‘will work promptly to ensure that the internalization fee is 4 ‘‘Default’’ refers to the standard rebated provided to Members for orders that add liquidity to the Exchange absent Members qualifying for additional volume tiered pricing. The Exchange notes that Members may qualify for a higher rebate than the default rebate if they satisfy the volume tier requirements outlined in Footnotes 1, 2, or 13. 5 References herein to ‘‘Footnotes’’ refer only to footnotes on the Exchange’s fee schedule and not to footnotes within the current filing. 6 This fee is consistent with the limitations of Regulation NMS, SEC Rule 610(c), for securities with a price of less than $1.00. 7 The Exchange notes that the rates in the table of flags on its fee schedule all apply to orders in securities priced $1 and over and therefore, no amendment is necessary to the rates displayed on this table at this time. 8 Members are advised to consult Rule 12.2 respecting fictitious trading. 9 See Securities Exchange Release No. 64452 (May 10, 2011), 76 FR 28110, 28111 (May 13, 2011) (SR– EDGX–2011–13).

Washington National Variable Annuity Fund A [File No. 811-1661]

    Summary: Applicant, Washington National Variable Annuity Fund A, a 
unit investment trust registered under the Investment Company Act of 
1940 (the ``Act''), seeks an order declaring that it has ceased to be 
an investment company. Washington National Insurance Company 
(``Company''), of which Applicant is a separate account, terminated the 
offering of Applicant's variable annuity contracts (``Contracts'') in 
1978 and has not engaged in any solicitation or marketing activities 
with respect to the Contracts for 34 years. Since 1978, the number of 
outstanding Contracts declined as a result of surrenders by owners of 
the Contracts and deaths of owners or annuitants under their Contracts. 
As a result, Applicant currently has only 18 beneficial owners of such 
Contracts. Applicant is not making and does not presently propose to 
make a public offering of the Contracts. After the deregistration order 
requested by the Applicant issues, securityholders under the Contracts 
will be promptly notified that certain legal protections afforded to 
securityholders of an investment company registered under the Act will 
no longer apply to such Fund A securityholders. However, after issuance 
of the order, the Company will continue to be responsible for 
satisfying all the obligations to securityholders under the Contracts.
