Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 129 / Wednesday, July 6, 2016 / Notices III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the foregoing 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, the proposed rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 21 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder.22 A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) normally does not become operative for 30 days from the date of filing. However, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)(iii) 23 permits the Commission to designate a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Exchange has asked the Commission to waive the 30-day operative delay so that it may immediately offer the proposed risk protection feature. The Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Exchange proposes to adopt a functionality designed to assist Phlx members with managing certain risks in the event that a member loses communication with their FIX or SQF Ports due to a loss of connectivity. The Commission notes that two other options exchanges currently have similar risk protection functionalities for their members.24 Therefore, the Commission hereby waives the 30-day operative delay and designates the proposal effective upon filing.25 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 ehiers on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 21 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). 22 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). In addition, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) requires a self-regulatory organization to give the Commission written notice of its intention to file 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. The Exchange has satisfied this requirement. 23 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6)(iii). 24 See BOX Rule 8140 and CBOE Rule 6.23C. 25 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. See 15 U.S.C. 78c(f). VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:04 Jul 05, 2016 Jkt 238001 whether the proposed rule should be approved or disapproved. IV.

(CSXT), filed a verified notice of exemption 1 under 49 CFR part 1152 subpart F—Exempt Abandonments and Discontinuances of Service to discontinue service over an approximately 9.0-mile rail line on its Southern Region, Huntington Division, Laurel Fork Subdivision, Engineering C&O Division, from CSXT’s main line between milepost CLH 0.0 to the end of the line at milepost CLH 9.0 near Clothier, in Boone County, W.

The Line traverses U.S. Postal Service Zip Codes 25114, 25021, and 25047, and includes the station of Ashely Kay at milepost CLH 7.3 (FSAC 81993/OPSL 65155.01), which CSXT states can be closed. CSXT has certified that: (1) No freight traffic has moved over the Line for at least two years; (2) because the Line is not a through line, no overhead traffic has operated or needs to be rerouted; (3) no formal complaint filed by a user of rail service on the Line (or by a state or local government entity acting on behalf of such user) regarding cessation of service over the Line is pending either with the Surface Transportation Board or any U.S. District Court or has been decided in favor of a complainant within the two-year period; and (4) the requirements at 49 CFR 1105.12 (newspaper publication) and 49 CFR 1152.50(d)(1) (notice to governmental agencies) have been met. As a condition to this exemption, any employee adversely affected by the discontinuance of service shall be protected under Oregon Short Line Railroad—Abandonment Portion Goshen Branch Between Firth & 1 CSXT initially filed the notice of exemption on May 20, 2016. By letter filed June 7, 2016, CSXT notified the Board that it had omitted a Zip Code from its notice and requested that the proceeding be held in abeyance. The Board granted CSXT’s request to allow it to submit supplemental information, and on June 16, 2016, CSXT submitted amendments to the notice. Therefore, June 16, 2016 is considered the filing date and the basis for all dates in this notice.

To address whether this condition adequately protects affected employees, a petition for partial revocation under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) must be filed. Provided no formal expression of intent to file an offer of financial assistance (OFA) to subsidize continued rail service has been received, this exemption will become effective on August 5, 2016, unless stayed pending reconsideration. Petitions to stay that do not involve environmental issues and formal expressions of intent to file an OFA to subsidize continued rail service under 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2) 2 must be filed by July 18, 2016.3 Petitions to reopen must be filed by July 26, 2016, with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423–0001.

See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25). 3 Because CSXT is seeking to discontinue service, not to abandon the line, trail use/rail banking and public use conditions are not appropriate. Because there will be environmental review during abandonment, this discontinuance does not require an environmental review. E:\FR\FM\06JYN1.SGM 06JYN1
