The Exchange has asked the Commission to waive the 30-day operative delay so that the proposal may become operative immediately upon filing.

Accordingly, the Commission designates the proposed rule change as operative upon filing with the Commission.14 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act.
