Start Preamble December 10, 2018.

On June 4, 2018, New York Stock Exchange LLC (“Exchange”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) [1] and Rule 19b-4 thereunder,[2] a proposed rule change to make permanent the Exchange's Retail Liquidity Program Pilot (“Program”). The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on June 21, 2018.[3] On July 31, 2018, the Commission designated a longer period within which to approve the proposed rule change, disapprove the proposed rule change, or institute proceedings to determine whether to disapprove the proposed rule change.[4] On September 18, 2018, the Commission instituted proceedings under Section 19(b)(2)(B) of the Act [5] to determine whether to approve or disapprove the proposed rule change.[6] The Commission received no comment letters on the proposed rule change.

Section 19(b)(2) of the Act [7] provides that, after initiating proceedings, the Commission shall issue an order approving or disapproving the proposed rule change not later than 180 days after the date of publication of notice of filing of the proposed rule change. The Commission may, however, extend the period for issuing an order approving or disapproving the proposed rule change by not more than 60 days if the Commission determines that a longer period is appropriate and publishes the Start Printed Page 64415reasons for such determination. The proposed rule change was published for notice and comment in the Federal Register on June 21, 2018.[8] December 18, 2018 is 180 days from that date, and February 16, 2019 is 240 days from that date. The Commission finds it appropriate to designate a longer period within which to issue an order approving or disapproving the proposed rule change so that it has sufficient time to consider the proposed rule change.[9]

Accordingly, the Commission, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,[10] designates February 16, 2019 as the date by which the Commission should either approve or disapprove the proposed rule change (File No. SR-NYSE-2018-28).
