Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
The Exchange proposes to amend certain NYSE rules to replace references to "NYSE Amex" with "NYSE MKT" to reflect the recent name change of NYSE Amex LLC to NYSE MKT LLC. The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange's Web site at
In its filing with the Commission, the self-regulatory organization 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 those 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 parts of such statements.
The Exchange proposes to amend certain NYSE rules to replace references to "NYSE Amex" with "NYSE MKT" to reflect the recent name change of NYSE Amex LLC to NYSE MKT LLC.
The Exchange proposes to replace references to NYSE Amex in Rules 2, 17, 18, 36, 70, and 103B with references to NYSE MKT. NYSE MKT does not propose to rename the NYSE Amex options business; therefore, references to "NYSE Amex Options" and the "NYSE Amex Options Trading Floor" in Rules 6A, 36, and 70 would not be changed. In addition, the Exchange does not propose to make any changes to temporary rules or rules that are no longer applicable (e.g., Rules 300.10T and 715 and Listed Company Manual Sections 902.02, 902.08, and 902.09).
The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Act"),
The Exchange 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.
No written comments were solicited or received with respect to the proposed rule change.
Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest, does not impose any significant burden on competition, and, by its terms, does not become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act
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.
Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods:

* Send paper comments in triplicate to Elizabeth M. Murphy, Secretary, Securities and Exchange Commission, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 20549-1090.
