Introduction On January 15, 2016, the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (the ‘‘MSRB’’ or ‘‘Board’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘‘SEC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 a proposed rule change consisting of proposed 1 15 2 17 PO 00000 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1).

The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on February 4, 2016.3 The Commission received two comment letters on the proposed rule change.4 This order approves the proposed rule change. II. Description of the Proposed Rule Change The Board is comprised of 21 members 5 who, collectively, govern the MSRB to carry out its mission primarily by regulating dealers and municipal advisors, providing market transparency through its Electronic Municipal Market Access (EMMA) Web site, and conducting market leadership, outreach and education. Many general and some more detailed aspects of the Board’s composition are set forth in the Act.6 It categorizes the members of the Board into two broad groups: Individuals who must be associated with a broker, dealer or municipal securities dealer (‘‘dealer’’) or municipal advisor (collectively, ‘‘Regulated Representatives’’), and individuals who must be independent of any dealer or municipal advisor (‘‘Public Representatives’’).7 The Act then specifies that the number of Public Representatives must at all times exceed the number of Regulated Representatives,8 and sets minimum requirements for certain types of individuals to serve in the two groups.9 Congress also delegated authority to the MSRB to determine many aspects of Board composition by rule, including the size of the Board and the length of the term of Board member service.10 Currently, the Board is divided into three seven-member classes that serve staggered, three-year terms.11 The MSRB stated that under this framework, total 3 Securities Exchange Act Release No. 76999 (Jan. 29, 2016), 81 FR 6088 (Feb. 4, 2016) (the ‘‘Proposing Release’’). 4 See Letters from Lisa S.
