SUMMARY:

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission is making technical corrections to Footnotes 5 and 6 which were published in the Federal Register on April 18, 2006 (71 FR 19877). The footnotes are revised as follows:

Footnote 5: The Statement of Policy did not apply to broad-based stock index futures and option contracts that are now covered by Section 2(a)(1)(C) of the Commodity Exchange Act.

Footnote 6: This notice of revision will not alter a foreign board of trade's obligation to seek and receive written supplemental no-action relief from Commission staff prior to offering or selling broad-based securities index futures and option contracts through U.S.-located trading systems.
