Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Securities and Exchange Commission.

ACTION:

Final rule; corrections.

SUMMARY:

In Release No. 34-51983, the Securities and Exchange Commission issued amendments concerning the “penny stock rules” under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which appeared in the Federal Register of July 13, 2005 (70 FR 40614). In Release No. 34-51808, the Commission issued Regulation NMS, which appeared in the Federal Register of June 29, 2005 (70 FR 37496), and which, among other things, made technical amendments to the definition of penny stock. Since the effective date of Regulation NMS predates that of the amendments to the penny stock rules, the Commission is making technical corrections to the amendments to the penny stock rules to conform to the changes made in connection with Regulation NMS.

DATES:

Effective September 12, 2005.
