Federal Register Highlights – 7/27/16

July 27, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for July 27, 2016:

PROPOSED RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the US40–322 (Albany Avenue) Bridge across the NJICW (Inside Thorofare), mile 70.0, at Atlantic City, NJ. The deviation is necessary to facilitate the 2016 6th Annual Atlantic City Triathlon. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position. The deviation is effective from 6:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on August 14, 2016.

RULE: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD–700–1A10 and BD–700–1A11 airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of operator inability to open the main passenger door following severe hot soak conditions. This AD requires the incorporation of a new configuration to the passenger door external handle detent to enhance the performance across the full range of the airplane operating temperatures. We are issuing this AD to prevent thermal expansion and permanent deformation at severe hot soak conditions, creating high friction between the spring pot housing and the slider that could result in inability to open the main passenger door and impede evacuation in the event of an emergency. This AD is effective August 31, 2016.

PROPOSED RULE: The Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission” or “SEC”) is proposing to amend Rules 600 and 606 of Regulation National Market System (“Regulation NMS”) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) to require additional disclosures by broker-dealers to customers about the routing of their orders. Specifically, with respect to institutional orders, the Commission is proposing to amend Rule 606 of Regulation NMS to require a broker- dealer, upon request of its customer, to provide specific disclosures related to the routing and execution of the customer’s institutional orders for the prior six months. The Commission also is proposing to amend Rule 606 of Regulation NMS to require a broker- dealer to make publicly available aggregated information with respect to its handling of customers’ institutional orders for each calendar quarter. With respect to retail orders, the Commission is proposing to make targeted enhancements to current order routing disclosures under Rule 606 by requiring limit order information to be broken down into marketable and non- marketable categories, requiring the disclosure of the net aggregate amount of any payment for order flow received, payment from any profit-sharing relationship received, transaction fees paid, and transaction rebates received by a broker-dealer from certain venues, requiring broker-dealers to describe any terms of payment for order flow arrangements and profit-sharing relationships with certain venues that may influence their order routing decisions, and eliminating the requirement to divide retail order routing information by listing market. In connection with these new requirements, the Commission is proposing to amend Rule 600 of Regulation NMS to include a number of newly defined terms which are used in the proposed amendments to Rule 606. The Commission is also proposing to amend Rules 605 and 606 of Regulation NMS to require that the public order execution and order routing reports be kept publicly available for a period of three years and to make conforming changes to Rule 607. Finally, the Commission is proposing to amend Rule 3a51–1(a) under the Exchange Act; Rule 13h–1(a)(5) of Regulation 13D–G; Rule 105(b)(1) of Regulation M; Rules 201(a) and 204(g) of Regulation SHO; Rules 600(b), 602(a)(5), 607(a)(1), and 611(c) of Regulation NMS; and Rule 1000 of Regulation SCI, to update cross- references as a result of this proposed rule. Comments should be received on or before September 26, 2016. (To submit comments, visit, reference File No. S7–14–16.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend its regulations that govern the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program. This rulemaking would clarify VA’s procedures for continuing to fund SSVF Program services in communities that have lost grants due to the non- renewal or termination of services of an existing award to a grantee by awarding non-renewed or deobligated funds to other existing SSVF grantees in or near the affected community. This award of non-renewed or deobligated funds would prevent potential access issues associated with grant termination. This rulemaking would also reduce the number of satisfaction surveys grantees are required to provide to participants in order to reduce the burden on grantees and participants. Comments must be received on or before September 26, 2016. (To submit comments, visit, reference RIN 2900–AP61.)
