Start Preamble September 10, 2008.

In FR Doc. No. E8-20869, for Tuesday, September 9, 2008, beginning on page 52434, make the following correction. On page 52436, first column, the first full paragraph is revised to read as follows:

A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b-4(f)(6) normally may not become operative prior to 30 days after the date of filing.[17] However, Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii) permits the Commission to designate a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest.[18] The Exchange has requested that the Commission waive the 30-day operative delay.[19] The Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest because BSE has represented that the Instruments of Accession will be executed on August 29, 2008, and there is no reason to delay implementation of the changes to the BOX LLC Agreement pursuant to the Instruments of Accession. For these reasons, the Commission designates the proposal to be operative upon filing with the Commission.[20]

Start Signature

For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.

Florence E. Harmon,

Acting Secretary.

The Commission has determined to waive the five-day prefiling period in this case.
