The Commission may extend the period for issuing an order approving or disapproving the proposed rule change, however, by not more than 60 days if the Commission determines that a longer period is appropriate and publishes the reasons for such determination. The proposed rule change was published for notice and comment in the Federal Register on July 14, 2016. January 10, 2017 is 180 days from that date, and March 11, 2017 is 240 days from that date.
