On July 3, 2019, Cboe Exchange, Inc. (the “Exchange” or “Cboe Options”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Act”) [1] and Rule 19b-4 thereunder,[2] a proposal to amend Rule 6.49A concerning off-floor position transfers. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on July 23, 2019.[3] The Exchange submitted Amendment No. 1 to its filing on August 6, 2019.[4] The Start Printed Page 47628Commission received one comment letter on the proposed rule change.[5]

Section 19(b)(2) of the Act [6] provides that, within 45 days of publication of the notice of the filing of a proposed rule change, or within such longer period up to 90 days as the Commission may designate if it finds such longer period to be appropriate and publishes its reasons for so finding or as to which the self-regulatory organization consents, the Commission shall either approve the proposed rule change, disapprove the proposed rule change, or institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be disapproved. The 45th day after publication of the notice for this proposed rule change is September 6, 2019.

The Commission hereby is extending the 45-day time period for Commission action on the proposed rule change.

Accordingly, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,[7] the Commission designates October 21, 2019 as the date by which the Commission shall either approve, disapprove, or institute proceedings to determine whether to disapprove, the proposed rule change (File No. SR-CBOE-2019-035).
