In 2010, the NSTC created a Subcommittee on Forensic Science (SoFS) to assess the challenges of and opportunities for implementing recommendations made by the National Research Council (NRC) in its 2009 report, Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States: A Path Forward www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/grants/ 228091.pdf. Among its recommendations, the NRC called on the Federal Government to launch a ‘‘broad-based effort to achieve nationwide fingerprint data interoperability.’’ In response to this recommendation, the SoFS chartered the AFIS Interoperability Task Force with the goal of coordinating the development of a strategic plan for achieving this goal. This report, Achieving Interoperability for Latent Fingerprint Identification in the United States, evolved out of the work of the Task Force. The report describes the current state of latent interoperability among Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS) and identifies a series of actions that can be taken by Federal agencies to implement the standards needed to achieve interoperability, develop an overarching national connectivity strategy and infrastructure, and support State and local agencies in building connections across jurisdictions.

Pursuant to Section 17(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’),1 and Rule 17d–2 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on October 14, 2014, Miami International Securities Exchange, LLC (‘‘MIAX’’) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (‘‘FINRA’’) (together with MIAX, the ‘‘Parties’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’ or ‘‘SEC’’) a plan for the allocation of regulatory responsibilities, dated October 13, 2014 (‘‘17d–2 Plan’’ or the ‘‘Plan’’). The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the 17d–2 Plan from interested persons. I. Introduction Section 19(g)(1) of the Act,3 among other things, requires every selfregulatory organization (‘‘SRO’’) registered as either a national securities exchange or national securities association to examine for, and enforce compliance by, its members and persons associated with its members with the Act, the rules and regulations thereunder, and the SRO’s own rules, unless the SRO is relieved of this responsibility pursuant to Section 17(d) or Section 19(g)(2) of the Act.4 Without this relief, the statutory obligation of each individual SRO could result in a pattern of multiple examinations of broker-dealers that maintain memberships in more than one SRO (‘‘common members’’). Such regulatory duplication would add unnecessary expenses for common members and their SROs. Section 17(d)(1) of the Act 5 was intended, in part, to eliminate unnecessary multiple examinations and regulatory duplication.6 With respect to 1 15 U.S.C. 78q(d).
