    COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION

    17 CFR Parts 140 and 145

    Corrections to Regional Office Information

    AGENCY: Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

    ACTION: Final rule.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    SUMMARY: The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'') is amending its regulations to delete references to the Minneapolis office, which was closed as of December 31, 2006, and to update the address of the Southwestern regional office.

    DATES: Effective April 4, 2007.

    FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stacy Yochum, Deputy Executive

    Director, at (202) 418-5157, Office of the Executive Director,

    Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Three Lafayette Centre, 1155 21st

    St., NW., Washington DC 20581; e-mail syochum@cftc.gov.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Commission Rule 140.2 describes the

    organization and location of the Commission's regional offices in New

    York, Chicago, and Kansas City (the Eastern, Central, and Southwestern

    regional offices). As of December 31, 2006, the Commission closed the

    Minneapolis sub-office of the Southwestern regional office. In

    addition, the Kansas City office moved to a new location in September

    2004. The Commission is therefore amending Rule 140.2 to delete the

    reference to the Minneapolis office and to reflect the new address of

    the Southwestern regional office. There is no change to the states

    covered by the Southwestern region. The Commission is also replacing

    the term ``regional director'' with ``regional coordinator'' to reflect

    the term used by the Commission to describe the head of each regional

    office.

    In addition, the Commission is amending the list of addresses

    provided in Rule 145.6, which instructs members of the public on where

    to direct requests for public records, to remove the reference to the

    Minneapolis office and to update the Kansas City address.
