In approving the proposed rule change, as modified by Amendment No.1, the Commission has also considered the impact of the proposed rule change on efficiency, competition, and capital formation.80 The Commission does not believe that the proposed rule change, as modified by Amendment No. 1 would impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act.

Accelerated Approval of Proposed Rule Change as Modified by Amendment No. 1 The Commission finds good cause to approve the proposed rule change, as modified by Amendment No. 1, prior to the 30th day after the date of publication of Amendment No. 1 in the Federal Register. As discussed above, Amendment No. 1 partially amends the text of the proposed rule change to provide certain clarifications relating to the notifications that would be provided by municipal advisors to their municipal advisory clients and to the terms used with the recordkeeping of municipal advisory client complaints, to extend the proposed effective date, and to make other technical changes to clarify or simplify rule text.81 Specifically, the changes respond to commenters’ concerns, are technical in nature, and clarify or simplify the proposed rule change. The MSRB states that Amendment No. 1 in many respects eliminates unnecessary language by relying on terms that are defined in the MSRB’s rule book, the Act, or Commission rules under the Act.82 In addition, the MSRB notes that the changes are consistent with the purposes of the proposed rule change to advance the development of a comprehensive regulatory framework for municipal advisors and to update the Board’s customer complaint rules. With respect to those portions of Amendment No. 1 that modify certain definitions, the MSRB notes that the proposed rule change, as described in the Notice of Filing, contemplated that the clients of both solicitor and nonsolicitor municipal advisors would be covered by the proposed rule change.83 According to the MSRB, the precision added to certain definitions by Amendment No. 1 parallels the precision with which the MSRB defines U.S.C. 78c(f). VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:02 Jan 19, 2017 Jkt 241001 VII. Conclusion It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,85 that the proposed rule change, as modified by Amendment No. 1 (SR–MSRB–2016–15) be, and hereby is, approved on an accelerated basis. For the Commission, pursuant to delegated authority.86 Eduardo A. Aleman, Assistant Secretary.

II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES 1. Purpose The Exchange proposes to amend its Fees Schedule. Specifically, the Exchange proposes to increase the fees charged for a CMI Login ID and FIX Login ID. The Exchange currently assesses $500 per Login ID, per month for CMI Login IDs and FIX Login IDs. The Exchange has expended significant resources setting up, providing and maintaining this connectivity and has ongoing and increasing costs associated with maintaining connectivity. The Exchange desires to recoup such costs and as such, proposes to increase the monthly fees from $500 per Login ID, per month to $550 per Login ID, per month. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’) and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to the Exchange and, in particular, the requirements of Section 6(b) of the Act.3 Specifically, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Section 6(b)(5) 4 requirements that the rules of an exchange be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination with persons engaged in regulating, clearing, settling, processing information with respect to, and facilitating transactions in securities, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and 3 15 4 15 U.S.C. 78f(b).

Additionally, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b)(4) of the Act,5 which requires that Exchange rules provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees, and other charges among its Trading Permit Holders and other persons using its facilities. The Exchange believes increasing the CMI Login ID and FIX Login ID fees is reasonable because the Exchange desires to recoup increasing costs associated with maintaining connectivity to C2. The Exchange believes it’s equitable and not unfairly discriminatory because all Permit Holders will be assessed the same amount for Login ID fees. C2 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 Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on intramarket competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act because all Permit Holders will be assessed the same Login ID fees and because the increased fee will help the Exchange recoup costs associated with maintaining connectivity to the Exchange. The Exchange does not believe that the proposed change will impose any burden on intermarket competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act because it only applies to trading on the Exchange. Should the proposed change make C2 a more attractive trading venue for market participants at other exchanges, such market participants may elect to become market participants at C2. C. 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 The foregoing rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 6 and paragraph (f) of Rule 5 15 6 15 Jkt 241001 PO 00000 U.S.C. 78f(b)(4).

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 will institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or disapproved. IV.

The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose Currently, the Exchange offers Performance Routing Program (‘‘PRP) rebates to Non-ISE Gemini Market Maker,3 Firm Proprietary,4 BrokerDealer,5 and Professional Customer 6 orders based on the member’s maker average daily volume (‘‘ADV’’) in NonISE Gemini Market Maker, Firm Proprietary, Broker-Dealer, and Professional Customer orders that improve the national best bid or offer (‘‘NBBO’’) in a series at the time of order entry (‘‘PRP eligible contracts’’).7 Specifically, members that execute an ADV of 9,999 PRP eligible contracts or fewer are entitled to a maker rebate of $0.25 per contract in both Penny Symbols and Non-Penny Symbols for their Non-ISE Gemini Market Maker, Firm Proprietary, Broker-Dealer, and Professional Customer orders. Members that execute an ADV of 10,000 or more PRP eligible contracts are entitled to a maker rebate of $0.40 per contract in Penny Symbols and $0.65 per contract in Non-Penny Symbols for the above market participant types if the order does not improve the NBBO at the time of order entry. In addition, members that qualify for the higher tier of PRP rebates are entitled to a maker rebate of $0.47 per contract in Penny Symbols and $0.71 per contract in Non-Penny Symbols for the above market participant types if the order improves 3 A ‘‘Non-ISE Gemini Market Maker’’ is a market maker as defined in Section 3(a)(38) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, registered in the same options class on another options exchange. 4 A ‘‘Firm Proprietary’’ order is an order submitted by a member for its own proprietary account. 5 A ‘‘Broker-Dealer’’ order is an order submitted by a member for a broker-dealer account that is not its own proprietary account. 6 A ‘‘Professional Customer’’ is a person or entity that is not a broker/dealer and is not a Priority Customer. 7 All eligible volume from affiliated members is aggregated in determining applicable tiers, provided there is at least 75% common ownership between the members as reflected on each member’s Form BD, Schedule A. PO 00000 Frm 00124 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the NBBO in the series at the time it is entered.8 The Exchange now proposes to eliminate the PRP as this program has not been successful in attracting order flow that improves the NBBO. As proposed, members will receive a maker rebate of $0.25 per contract in Penny Symbols and Non-Penny Symbols for their Non-ISE Gemini Market Maker, Firm Proprietary, Broker-Dealer, and Professional Customer orders (i.e., the current Tier 1 maker rebate). Members will no longer be able to achieve higher maker rebates based on their maker ADV in Non-ISE Gemini Market Maker, Firm Proprietary, Broker-Dealer, and Professional Customer orders that improve the NBBO in a series at the time of order entry.9 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the provisions of Section 6 of the Act,10 in general, and Section 6(b)(4) of the Act,11 in particular, in that it is designed to provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees, and other charges among its members and other persons using its facilities. The Exchange believes that it is reasonable and equitable to eliminate the PRP as this rebate program was not successful in attracting the type of order flow that it was designed to incentivize. The Exchange adopted the PRP to encourage members enter orders that improve the NBBO in order to create more trading opportunities at better prices for all market participants that trade on the Exchange. The Exchange does not believe that the PRP has met this goal, and is therefore proposing to eliminate the program. With the proposed elimination of the PRP, NonISE Gemini Market Maker, Firm Proprietary, Broker-Dealer, and Professional Customer orders will continue to be entitled to a maker rebate in Penny and Non-Penny Symbols that is the same as the current Tier 1 maker rebate. The current Tier 2 maker rebates for these market participant types will be removed as this tier is being eliminated with the elimination of the PRP program. The Exchange believes 8 See Schedule of Fees, Section I., Regular Order Fees and Rebates, footnotes 14 and 15. 9 This includes both the regular rebate for orders that do not improve the NBBO at the time of order entry, and the enhanced rebates provided in footnotes 14 and 15 of the Schedule of Fees for orders that improve the NBBO at the time of order entry. The regular rebates will now be marked ‘‘n/ a’’ since there will no longer be any PRP tiers, and the associated footnotes for enhanced rebates will be eliminated. 10 15 U.S.C. 78f. 11 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(4).

proposed rule change is available on the Exchange's Web site (http://

[[Page 7905]]

www.c2exchange.com/Legal/), at the Exchange's Office of the Secretary, 
and at the Commission's Public Reference Room.

II. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

    In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange included statements 
concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and 
discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The 
text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in 
Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in 
sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such 
statements.

A. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    The Exchange proposes to amend its Fees Schedule. Specifically, the 
Exchange proposes to increase the fees charged for a CMI Login ID and 
FIX Login ID. The Exchange currently assesses $500 per Login ID, per 
month for CMI Login IDs and FIX Login IDs. The Exchange has expended 
significant resources setting up, providing and maintaining this 
connectivity and has ongoing and increasing costs associated with 
maintaining connectivity. The Exchange desires to recoup such costs and 
as such, proposes to increase the monthly fees from $500 per Login ID, 
per month to $550 per Login ID, per month.
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with 
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ``Act'') and the rules and 
regulations thereunder applicable to the Exchange and, in particular, 
the requirements of Section 6(b) of the Act.\3\ Specifically, the 
Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the 
Section 6(b)(5) \4\ requirements that the rules of an exchange be 
designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to 
promote just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation 
and coordination with persons engaged in regulating, clearing, 
settling, processing information with respect to, and facilitating 
transactions in securities, to remove impediments to and perfect the 
mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, 
in general, to protect investors and the public interest. Additionally, 
the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with 
Section 6(b)(4) of the Act,\5\ which requires that Exchange rules 
provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees, and 
other charges among its Trading Permit Holders and other persons using 
its facilities.

    \5\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(4).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange believes increasing the CMI Login ID and FIX Login ID 
fees is reasonable because the Exchange desires to recoup increasing 
costs associated with maintaining connectivity to C2. The Exchange 
believes it's equitable and not unfairly discriminatory because all 
Permit Holders will be assessed the same amount for Login ID fees.

B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    C2 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 Exchange does not believe 
that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on intramarket 
competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the 
purposes of the Act because all Permit Holders will be assessed the 
same Login ID fees and because the increased fee will help the Exchange 
recoup costs associated with maintaining connectivity to the Exchange. 
The Exchange does not believe that the proposed change will impose any 
burden on intermarket competition that is not necessary or appropriate 
in furtherance of the purposes of the Act because it only applies to 
trading on the Exchange. Should the proposed change make C2 a more 
attractive trading venue for market participants at other exchanges, 
such market participants may elect to become market participants at C2.

C. 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

    The foregoing rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 
19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \6\ and paragraph (f) of Rule 19b-4 \7\ 
thereunder. 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 will institute proceedings to 
determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or 
disapproved.
