Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 137 / Thursday, July 17, 2014 / Notices section 19(b)(3)(A)(i) of the Act 14 and Rule 19b–4(f)(1) 15 thereunder. The Exchange believes that this proposed procedural change under the existing rule is necessary in order to ensure the Exchange’s continued compliance with its Rules and applicable federal law.16 pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that its proposal is consistent with the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’) 17 and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to the Exchange and, in particular, the requirements of Section 6(b) of the Act. Specifically, the Exchange believes the proposed procedural change under Rule 807 is consistent with the Section 6(b)(5) 18 requirements that the rules of an exchange be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. In particular, the Exchange believes that fingerprint-based background checks via a Live-Scan system of employees, contractors, and temporary employees is consistent with the foregoing requirements of Section 6(b)(5) in that it will allow MIAX to remain compliant with the requirements of its Rule 807 and applicable federal law.19 Continuing to run fingerprintbased background checks is imperative for the Exchange as they help MIAX identify and exclude persons with felony or misdemeanor conviction records that may pose a threat to the safety of Exchange personnel or the security of facilities and records, thereby enhancing business continuity, workplace safety and the security of the Exchange’s operations and helping to protect investors and the public interest. Additionally, the proposed procedural change will allow MIAX to employ the same fingerprinting method currently employed by at least two other SR0s [sic].20 For the foregoing reasons, the Exchange believes that the proposed procedural change under the existing rule is appropriate in order to ensure continued compliance with applicable state and federal laws.21 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A)(i). CFR 240.19b–4(f)(1). 16 See supra note 9. 17 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). 18 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5). 19 See supra note 9. 20 See supra note 13. 21 See supra note 9. 15 17 15:01 Jul 16, 2014 MIAX does not believe that the proposed procedural change under the rule will impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in the furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The proposed procedural change under the rule would enhance the security of the Exchange’s facilities and records without adding any burden on market participants and allow the Exchange continued compliance with its fingerprinting rules and with Section 17(f)(2) of the Act as amended by the Dodd-Frank Act.22 C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others Written comments were neither solicited nor received. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action The foregoing proposed rule change is filed for immediate effectiveness pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 23 and Rule 19b–4(f)(1) 24 thereunder, because it constitutes a stated policy, practice, or interpretation with respect to the meaning, administration, or enforcement of an existing rule. 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. If the Commission takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule should be approved or disapproved. IV. Solicitation of Comments Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has authority to grant exemptions from many of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) under 49 U.S.C. 31315 and 31136(e), as amended by Section 4007 of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA–21) (Pub. L. 105– 178, June 9, 1998, 112 Stat. 107, 401). FMCSA has published in 49 C.F.R. part 381, subpart C final rules implementing the statutory changes in its exemption procedures made by section 4007, 69 FR 51589 (August 20, 2004).1 Under the rules in part 381, subpart C, FMCSA must publish a notice of each exemption request in the Federal Register. The Agency must provide the public with an opportunity to inspect the information relevant to the application, including any safety analyses that have been conducted and any research reports, technical papers and other publications referenced in the application. The Agency must also provide an opportunity to submit public comment on the applications for exemption. The Agency reviews the safety analyses and the public comments and determines whether granting the exemption would likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level that would be achieved without the exemption. The decision of the Agency must be published in the Federal Register. If the Agency denies the request, it must state the reason for doing so. If the decision is to grant the exemption, the notice must specify the person or class of persons receiving the exemption and the regulatory provision or provisions from which an exemption is granted. The notice must also specify the effective period of the exemption (up to 2 years) and explain the terms and conditions of the exemption. The exemption may be renewed.
