Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Securities and Exchange Commission.

ACTION:

Final rule; correcting amendment.

SUMMARY:

The Securities and Exchange Commission published a document in the Federal Register on June 29, 2005 (70 FR 37496) adopting rules under Regulation NMS, including the redesignation of the national market system rules previously adopted under section 11A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”), and two amendments to the joint industry plans for disseminating market information. In that document, two paragraphs from Rule 11Aa3-2 under the Exchange Act were inadvertently omitted from their redesignation into Regulation NMS. This document corrects that omission by adding paragraphs (a)(8)(i) and (a)(8)(ii) to Rule 608 of Regulation NMS.

DATES:

Effective date: August 29, 2005.
