SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES I. Abstract NASA’s founding legislation, the Space Act of 1958, as amended, directs the agency to expand human knowledge of Earth and space phenomena and to preserve the role of the United States as a leader in aeronautics, space science, and technology. The NASA Office of STEM Engagement administers the agency’s national education activities in support of the Space Act, including the performance measurement and evaluation of educational projects and programs. This generic clearance will allow the NASA Office of STEM Engagement to continue to test and pilot with subject matter experts, secondary students, higher education students, educators, and interested parties new and existing information collection forms and assessment instruments for the purposes of improvement and establishing validity and reliability characteristics of the forms and instruments. Existing information collections include the NASA Intern Survey (Retrospective Survey), NASA Internship Applicants and Awardees Survey (Retrospective Survey), STEM Challenges Impact Surveys (Educator Feedback Retrospective Survey), STEM Challenges Impact Surveys (Parent Survey), and STEM Challenges Impact Surveys (Student Retrospective Survey). Forms and instruments to be tested include program application forms, customer satisfaction questionnaires, focus group protocols, and project activity survey instruments. Methodological testing will include focus group discussions, pilot surveys to test new individual question items as well as the complete form and instrument. In addition, test-retest and similar protocols will be used to determine reliability characteristics of the forms and instruments. Methodological testing will assure that forms and instruments accurately and consistently collect and measure what they are intended to measure and that data collection items are interpreted precisely and consistently, all towards the goal of accurate Agency reporting while improving the execution of NASA STEM Engagement activities.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange is filing a proposal to amend the fee schedule applicable for MIAX Pearl Equities, an equities trading facility of the Exchange (the ‘‘Fee Schedule’’).3 The proposed changes will become effective on April 1, 2021. The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s website at http://www.miaxoptions.com/rulefilings/pearl at MIAX Pearl’s principal office, 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 SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION [Release No. 34–91497; File No. SR– PEARL–2021–15] Self-Regulatory Organizations; MIAX PEARL, LLC; Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of a Proposed Rule Change To Amend the MIAX Pearl Equities Fee Schedule jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES April 7, 2021. Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’),1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on March 31, 2021, MIAX PEARL, LLC (‘‘MIAX Pearl’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II, and III below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The Commission is publishing this notice to 1 2 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). 17 CFR 240.19b–4. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:42 Apr 12, 2021 Jkt 253001 The Exchange currently charges different rates for orders in Tapes A, B, and C securities priced at or above $1.00 that remove liquidity from the MIAX Pearl Equities Book.4 For securities priced at or above $1.00, the Exchange currently charges a fee of $0.0028 per share for orders that remove liquidity in Tapes A and C securities and $0.0027 per share for orders that remove liquidity in Tape B securities. The Exchange now proposes to decrease the fee to remove liquidity in securities priced at or above $1.00 to $0.0025 per share for Tapes A, B, and C securities.5 With the proposed change, the Exchange will charge the same $0.0025 per share fee for orders in Tape A, B, and C securities priced at or above $1.00 See Exchange Rule 1901. See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 90894 (January 11, 2021), 86 FR 4139 (January 15, 2021) (SR–PEARL–2020–37). 5 The Exchange does not propose to amend the rate for orders that remove liquidity in securities priced below $1.00. 3 4 PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 that remove liquidity from the MIAX Pearl Equities Book. The Exchange operates in a highly competitive market in which market participants can readily direct order flow to competing venues if they deem fee levels at a particular venue to be excessive or rebates/incentives to be insufficient. More specifically, the Exchange is only one of several equities venues (including both registered exchanges and various alternative trading systems) to which market participants may direct their order flow and execute their trades. Indeed, equity trading is currently dispersed across 16 exchanges,6 31 alternative trading systems,7 and numerous broker-dealer internalizers and wholesalers, all competing for order flow. Based on publicly available information, no single registered equities exchange currently has more than approximately 20% of total market share.8 Thus, in such a lowconcentrated and highly competitive market, no single equities trading venue possesses significant pricing power in the execution of trades, and, the Exchange currently represents a very small percentage of the overall market. The purpose of this proposed change is for business and competitive reasons. As a new entrant into the equities market, the Exchange initially adopted a fee of $0.0028 per share for orders that remove liquidity in securities priced at or above $1.00.9 The Exchange later delineated the fee for orders that remove liquidity in Tapes A and C from the fee for orders that remove liquidity in Tape B for securities priced at or above $1.00 from the MIAX Pearl Equities Book. With that proposal, the Exchange decreased the fee for orders that remove liquidity in Tape B securities priced at or above $1.00 from $0.0028 to $0.0027 per share. The purpose of this change was to target liquidity in Tape B securities as a means to encourage market participants to enter liquidity removing orders on the Exchange, thereby increasing the execution opportunities for the liquidity adding orders resting on the MIAX Pearl Equities Book.10 Since those changes 6 See Cboe Global Markets, U.S Equities Market Volume Summary, available at https:// markets.cboe.com/us/equities/market_share/. 7 See FINRA ATS Transparency Data, available at https://otctransparency.finra.org/otctransparency/ AtsIssueData.
