Regulatory Flexibility Agenda

AGENCY: Securities and Exchange Commission.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: The Securities and Exchange Commission is publishing an agenda 
of its rulemaking actions pursuant to the Regulatory Flexibility Act 
(RFA) (Pub. L. No. 96-354, 94 Stat. 1164) (Sep. 19, 1980). Information 
in the agenda was accurate on September 10, 2010, the day on which the 
Commission's staff completed compilation of the data. To the extent 
possible, rulemaking actions by the Commission since that date have 
been reflected in the agenda. The Commission invites questions and 
public comment on the agenda and on the individual agenda entries.

    The Commission is now printing in the Federal Register, along 
with our preamble, only those agenda entries for which we have 
indicated that preparation of a Regulatory Flexibility Act analysis 
is required.

    The Commission's complete RFA agenda will be available online 
at www.reginfo.gov.

DATES: Comments should be received on or before December 30, 2010.

ADDRESSES: Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods:

posted without change; we do not edit personal identifying 
information from submissions. You should submit only information 
that you wish to make available publicly.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Anne Sullivan, Office of the General 
Counsel, 202-551-5019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The RFA requires each Federal agency, during 
April and October of each year, to publish in the Federal Register an 
agenda identifying rules that the agency expects to consider in the 
next 12 months that are likely to have a significant economic impact on 
a substantial number of small entities (5 U.S.C. 602(a)). The RFA 
specifically provides that publication of the agenda does not preclude 
an agency from considering or acting on any matter not included in the 
agenda and that an agency is not required to consider or act on any 
matter that is included in the agenda (5 U.S.C. 602(d)). Actions that 
do not have an estimated date are placed in the long-term category; the 
Commission may nevertheless act on items in that category within the 
next 12 months. The agenda includes new entries, entries carried over 
from prior publications, and rulemaking actions that have been 
completed (or withdrawn) since publication of the last agenda.

    The following abbreviations for the acts administered by the 
Commission are used in the agenda:

    ``Securities Act''--Securities Act of 1933

    ``Exchange Act''--Securities Exchange Act of 1934

    ``Investment Company Act''--Investment Company Act of 1940

    ``Investment Advisers Act''--Investment Advisers Act of 1940

     The Commission invites public comment on the agenda and on the 
individual agenda entries.

By the Commission.

Dated: September 10, 2010.

 Elizabeth M. Murphy,

Secretary.

151A. The Commission issued a release withdrawing Rule 151A.

Abstract: As part of its efforts to respond to fraud and manipulation 
in the microcap securities market, the Commission proposed amendments 
to Rule 15c2-11. These amendments would limit the rule's piggyback 
provision and increase public availability of issuer information. The 
amendments would expand the information review requirements for non-
reporting issuers and the documentation required for significant 
relationships between the broker-dealer and the issuer of the security 
to be quoted. Finally, the amendments would exclude from the rule 
securities of larger, more liquid issuers.

confirmation disclosure requirements do not determine broker-dealer 
disclosure obligations under other provisions of the law.
