Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 3 / Thursday, January 5, 2017 / Notices Twelfth Amendment to the LULD Plan and the Exchange’s Trading Halt Auction Filing. Until such time as these proposed changes have been approved and operative, the price collar thresholds for Trading Halt Auctions would continue to be aligned with the clearly erroneous execution guidelines and therefore continuing with these price collar thresholds would reduce the potential for a Trading Halt Auction to be a clearly erroneous execution. In addition, the Exchange believes that extending the Exchange’s interim measure pending Commission approval of the Twelfth Amendment to the LULD Plan and the Trading Halt Auction Filing would be consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The proposed change is not designed to address any competitive issue but rather to provide for the interim price collar thresholds for Trading Halt Auctions on the Exchange to remain in effect until the Trading Halt Auction Filing is approved and operative. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others No written comments were solicited or received with respect to the proposed rule change. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES 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, it has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 14 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) thereunder.15 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the 14 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). In addition, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)(iii) requires a self-regulatory organization to give the Commission 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. The Exchange has satisfied this requirement. 15 17 VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:06 Jan 04, 2017 Jkt 241001 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 change should be approved or disapproved. IV.

and potential non-Amtrak operators of intercity passenger rail service. 
The FAST Act directs the Board to establish procedures for the 
resolution of these disputes, ``which may include the provision of 
professional mediation services.'' The Board adopted final rules to 
implement these procedures in Dispute Resolution Procedures Under the 
Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act of 2015, EP 734 (STB served
