At this time, FINRA intends to retain the language as a standalone provision under proposed Rule 1013(c) to maintain clear parity with the language appearing under proposed Rule 1017(h). However, FINRA will consider NASAA’s recommendation in connection with its separate proposal to substantially restructure the MAP rules.78 6. Other Comments UNLV recommended that FINRA consider proposing a rule to protect investors when FINRA members try to convert themselves into another area of the securities industry while facing covered pending arbitration claims or outstanding unpaid arbitration awards. IBN expressed the view that ‘‘[a]rbitration has nothing to do with the law it is about feelings[,]’’ suggesting that there needs to be two sets of rulebooks, one for small firms and the other for large firms. While FINRA acknowledges the commenters’ concerns, their recommendations are beyond the scope of this proposed rulemaking and, therefore, FINRA has not addressed them here. III.
