May 7, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for May 7, 2015:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Oregon State (Lewis and Clark River) Highway Bridge across the Lewis and Clark River, mile 1.0, at Astoria, OR. The deviation is necessary to accommodate bridge maintenance activities on the bridge. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position and need not open to maritime traffic. This deviation is effective from 7 a.m. on May 11, 2015 to 5 p.m. on August 30, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the US 40–322 (Albany Avenue) Bridge across Inside Thorofare, NJICW mile 70.0, at Atlantic City, NJ. The deviation is necessary to facilitate the American Cancer Society Bike-a-thon. The deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed position to vessels requesting a bridge opening to ensure the biker’s safety and that there are no delays. This deviation is effective from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 14, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (the “Commission” or the “CFTC”) is proposing to amend the trade option exemption in its regulations, as described herein, in the following subject areas: Reporting requirements for trade option counterparties that are not swap dealers or major swap participants; recordkeeping requirements for trade option counter-parties that are not swap dealers or major swap participants; and certain non-substantive amendments. Comments must be received on or before June 8, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: We are proposing amendments to Item 402 of Regulation S–K to implement Section 14(i) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), as added by Section 953(a) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Dodd-Frank Act”). Section 14(i) directs the Commission to adopt rules requiring registrants to disclose in a clear manner the relationship between executive compensation actually paid and the financial performance of the registrant. The proposed disclosure would be required in proxy or information statements in which executive compensation disclosure pursuant to Item 402 of Regulation S–K is required. The proposed disclosure requirements would not apply to emerging growth companies or foreign private issuers. Comments should be received on or before July 6, 2015.
