Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others The Exchange neither solicited nor received comments on the proposed rule change. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the proposed rule change does not (i) significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, the proposed rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 12 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii) thereunder.13 The Exchange has asked the Commission to waive the 30-day operative delay so that the proposal may become operative immediately upon filing. The Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, as it will allow the obvious error pilot program to continue uninterrupted while the industry gains further experience operating under the Plan, and avoid any investor confusion that could result from a temporary interruption in the pilot program. For this reason, the Commission designates the proposed rule change to be operative upon filing.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. If the Commission takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule should be approved or disapproved. 12 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6)(iii). As required under Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii), the Exchange provided the Commission with written notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a brief description and the text of the proposed rule change, at least five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission. 14 For purposes only of waiving the 30-day operative delay, the Commission has also considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation.

PO 00000 Determination The Foreign Missions Act (FMA), codified at 22 U.S.C. 4301–4316, authorizes the Secretary of State to approve the terms and conditions on which benefits are provided to foreign missions and to make compliance with those terms and conditions by foreign missions mandatory. 22 U.S.C. 4304(a), (b). Furthermore, the FMA provides that the ‘‘[t]erms and conditions established by the Secretary under this section may include . . . a requirement to pay to the Secretary a surcharge or fee.’’ 22 U.S.C. 4304(c)(1).

Therefore, pursuant to the authority vested in me by the FMA, in particular, 22 U.S.C. 4304(b), and Delegation of Authority No. 198 of September 16, 1992, I hereby determine that it is reasonably necessary to protect the interests of the United States to require foreign missions and international organizations, and, in each case, their staff members (each a ‘‘Beneficiary’’ and collectively, ‘‘Beneficiaries’’) to pay a surcharge or fee in instances where a Beneficiary creates resource demands on the Office of Foreign Missions (OFM) by: (1) Requesting the replacement of OFM-issued products; (2) failing to comply with the Department’s requirements relating to the acquisition or maintenance of liability insurance, license tags, or title and registration documents for motor vehicles, vessels, and aircraft; or (3) otherwise failing to comply with the terms on which the Department has required Beneficiaries to obtain or forego benefits under the FMA.

DEPARTMENT OF STATE

[Public Notice: 9332; No. 2014-4 ]


Determination

    The Foreign Missions Act (FMA), codified at 22 U.S.C. 4301-4316, 
authorizes the Secretary of State to approve the terms and conditions 
on which benefits are provided to foreign missions and to make 
compliance with those terms and conditions by foreign missions 
mandatory. 22 U.S.C. 4304(a), (b). Furthermore, the FMA provides that 
the ``[t]erms and conditions established by the Secretary under this 
section may include . . . a requirement to pay to the Secretary a 
surcharge or fee.'' 22 U.S.C. 4304(c)(1). The FMA also authorizes the 
Secretary to make any provision of the FMA applicable to international 
organizations (as defined in 22 U.S.C. 4309(b)) when the Secretary 
determines that such application is necessary to carry out the policy 
and objectives set forth in the FMA. 22 U.S.C. 4309(a).
    Therefore, pursuant to the authority vested in me by the FMA, in 
particular, 22 U.S.C. 4304(b), and Delegation of Authority No. 198 of 
September 16, 1992, I hereby determine that it is reasonably necessary 
to protect the interests of the United States to require foreign 
missions and international organizations, and, in each case, their 
staff members (each a ``Beneficiary'' and collectively, 
``Beneficiaries'') to pay a surcharge or fee in instances where a 
Beneficiary creates resource demands on the Office of Foreign Missions 
(OFM) by: (1) Requesting the replacement of OFM-issued products; (2) 
failing to comply with the Department's requirements relating to the 
acquisition or maintenance of liability insurance, license tags, or 
title and registration documents for motor vehicles, vessels, and 
aircraft; or (3) otherwise failing to comply with the terms on which 
the Department has required Beneficiaries to obtain or forego benefits 
under the FMA.
    The authority to regulate the provision of foreign mission benefits 
under the FMA has been delegated to the Director of OFM (Delegation of 
Authority No. 214, October 5, 1994).

Therefore, the rates, terms, and conditions associated with the 
imposition of surcharges or fees authorized herein may be established 
or revised at the Director's discretion.

Under Secretary for Management.
