Additionally, many of the amendments are designed to revert to existing requirements in the NASD and NYSE rules. For example, in Amendment No. 1, FINRA proposed to respond to commenter concerns by, among other things: • Deleting references to MSRB rules, noting that members are separately obligated to comply with MSRB Rule G– 27; • Deleting proposed FINRA Rule 3110.03 (One-Person OSJs), in light of comments concerning the negative impact and costs of the proposed requirement, especially for independent firms; 222 • Replacing the presumption in proposed FINRA Rule 3110.03 (Supervision of Multiple OSJs by a Single Principal) that assigning one principal to be the on-site principal at more than two OSJs is unreasonable with a general statement that assigning a principal to more than one OSJ will be subject to scrutiny; • Modifying proposed Rule 3310.05 to incorporate additional clarification regarding a member’s risk-based review system; • Clarifying in proposed FINRA Rules 3110(b)(6)(D) and 3110(c)(3)(A) that the provisions do not create a strict liability obligation requiring identification and elimination of all conflicts of interest; • Revising the definition of ‘‘covered account’’ in proposed FINRA Rule 3110(d) to align the definition with existing NYSE guidance; and • Clarifying in proposed FINRA Rule 3120(b) that a firm must only comply with the requirement to include certain additional content in its report to senior management only to the extent applicable to the member’s business, noting that not all the content requirements are relevant to every firm. Additionally, in its responses, FINRA provided guidance and clarifications concerning the provisions noted above and other provisions, as well as general matters, about which commenters raised concerns. For example, FINRA responded to comments concerning costs,223 the application of a risk-based approach,224 review of correspondence and internal communications,225 review of transactions,226 review of customer 222 The Commission notes that FINRA urges firms to conduct focused reviews of one-person OSJs that conduct sales-related activity. 223 See supra Sections III(D)(2), III(F)(1), and III(K)(2). 224 See supra Sections III(E)(1), III(F)(1), and III(F)(2). 225 See supra Section III(F). 226 See supra Section III(E). VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:15 Dec 27, 2013 Jkt 232001 complaints,227 and maintenance and communication of written supervisory procedures,228 among others. In approving this proposed rule change, the Commission has considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation.229 As discussed above, the Commission believes that the proposed rule change, as amended by Amendment No. 1, is consistent with Sections 15A(b)(6) and 15A(b)(9) of the Act. The Commission ‘‘has long emphasized that the responsibility of broker-dealers to supervise their employees is a critical component of the federal regulatory scheme.’’ 230 By harmonizing current NASD and NYSE supervisory rules into one consolidated FINRA rulebook, the proposed rule will protect investors and the public interest while also enhancing efficiency. Among other things, the proposed rule would incorporate additional flexibility in some instances by permitting firms to implement risk-based principles consistent with a firm’s business model. The proposed rule also takes into account potential inefficiencies that firms could experience if FINRA adopted the expanded definition of ‘‘covered accounts.’’ As a result, FINRA amended the definition in Amendment No. 1 to align it with current guidance. The Commission also believes that the proposed rule takes into account competitive concerns that could arise from different supervisory approaches for different product lines, business models, business size, and resources. Moreover, by permitting a risk-based principles approach when applying certain supervisory standards, the proposed rule is designed to allow firms to implement supervisory policies and procedures and programs in a manner consistent with their business models. The Commission has reviewed the record for the proposed rule change and notes that the record does not contain any information to indicate that the proposed rule would have a significant effect on capital formation. The Commission believes that the effect of the proposed rule is beneficial and that the changes will enhance investor confidence by promoting robust supervisory policies and procedures, programs, and controls that can be flexibly applied to account for member firms’ business models. 227 See supra Section III(G). supra Section III(I). 229 See 15 U.S.C. 78c(f). 230 SEC, Division of Market Regulation (now known as, Division of Trading and Markets), Staff Legal Bulletin No. 17: Remote Office Supervision (March 19, 2004). 228 See PO 00000 Frm 00170 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 79559 V.

Buy America Waiver Notification Federal Highway Administration [FR Doc. 2013–31087 Filed 12–27–13; 8:45 am] Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT. BILLING CODE 4710–05–P ACTION: AGENCY: Notice. This notice provides information regarding the FHWA’s finding that a partial Buy America waiver is appropriate for the obligation of Federal-aid funds for 112 State requests regarding specific vehicle projects (including sedans, vans, pickups, SUVs, trucks, buses, and equipment, such as backhoes, street sweepers, tractors and low emission locomotives), including projects to retrofit vehicles with individual vehicle components, so long as they are assembled in the United States. The FHWA’s Buy America requirements provide that 100 percent of all steel and iron comprising a predominantly steel and iron product that is permanently incorporated into a project must be domestically manufactured. With respect to vehicles, manufacturers typically assemble these products with many different components and subcomponents containing steel and iron. As a result, vehicles are typically referred to as being made where the final product rolls off the assembly line for delivery into the marketplace. The FHWA is unaware of any vehicle that is comprised of 100 percent domestically produced steel and iron, resulting in a need for a partial Buy America waiver for these projects to proceed.

PO 00000 Frm 00171 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Background The FHWA’s Buy America requirements at 23 U.S.C. 313 require a domestic manufacturing process for any steel or iron products (including protective coatings) that are permanently incorporated in a Federalaid project. The statute also provides for a waiver of the Buy America requirements when the application would be inconsistent with the public interest or when satisfactory quality domestic steel and iron products are not sufficiently available. This notice provides information regarding the FHWA’s finding that a partial Buy America waiver is appropriate for the obligation of Federal-aid funds for the purchase of 112 State requests regarding specific vehicle projects (including sedans, vans, pickups, SUVs, trucks, buses, and equipment, such as backhoes, street sweepers, and tractors and low emission locomotives).1 In accordance with Division A, section 122 of the ‘‘Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2012’’ (Pub. L. 112–284), the FHWA published a notice of intent to issue a waiver on its Web site for 112 State requests regarding specific vehicle projects (including sedans, vans, pickups, SUVs, trucks, buses, and equipment, such as backhoes, street sweepers, and tractors) (http:// www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/ contracts/waivers.cfm?id=93) on November 15th. The FHWA received 20 comments in response to the publication. No commenter objected to the waiver, and one commenter expressed concern regarding FHWA’s current process of approving a waiver for vehicle retrofit projects under the Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) Improvement Program. This commenter suggested that FHWA should make all diesel retrofit devices and components exempt from the Buy America requirements. The FHWA appreciates the need to provide clear guidance concerning the application of Buy America requirements to vehicles and diesel engine retrofit projects; however, the issuance of guidance for that subject is outside of the scope of this Notice. The FHWA issued a Federal Register Notice and Request for Comment on various aspects of the Buy America requirements on July 10, 2013. The FHWA is currently evaluating all comments and assessing the need for additional guidance or clarification. Based on all the information available to the agency, the FHWA concludes that 1 See http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/ contracts/cmaq131115.cfm E:\FR\FM\30DEN1.SGM 30DEN1
