One commenter requests that the number of days afforded to a nonbank financial company petitioner to submit written materials after an oral hearing be extended from seven to fifteen days.21 The Council believes that the Initial Hearing Procedures need not be amended in this manner because seven days is a reasonable period in light of the fact that, at the time at which this section would be relevant, a nonbank financial company petitioner already will have had an opportunity to submit written materials, and an oral hearing, to contest the Council’s proposed determination. This commenter also states that any limitations on the written materials a petitioner may present, or on the duration of an oral hearing, as permitted under § 3(c) of the Council Hearing Procedures (unchanged from the Initial Hearing Procedures), should be applied by the Hearing Clerk in ‘‘extreme cases only.’’ 22 More generally, this commenter requests that, before the Council or the Hearing Clerk selects a date and place the petitioner is required to appear for a hearing, ‘‘the Hearing Clerk communicate with the petitioner to pick a date, time, and place which is convenient for both the petitioner, the Hearing Clerk, and [the Council].’’ 23 The Council has determined that the Initial Hearing Procedures need not be amended to address these concerns regarding the particular limitations or arrangements that generally should 19 AFSA, at 3.

Nonetheless, the Council expects that, in the ordinary course of making procedural determinations, the Hearing Clerk will coordinate with the petitioner, as appropriate, for the purpose of facilitating an ‘‘orderly and timely’’ hearing.24 D. Denial and Dismissal of a Hearing Section 7 of the Council Hearing Procedures provides that ‘‘[f]ailure to make a timely request for a hearing will waive the petitioner’s right to a hearing pursuant to section 113(e)(4) or section 804(d)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Act.’’ One commenter requests that the Council clarify that the Council or the Hearing Clerk will verify that the petitioner did, in fact, receive the Council’s notice of the proposed determination before a petitioner is deemed to have waived a right for a hearing.25 The Council expects to take reasonable steps to verify that a petitioner has, in fact, received the Council’s notice of proposed determination before determining that a waiver has occurred under § 7 of the Council Hearing Procedures.

TXT4Tots is a library of short, evidence-based messages focused on nutrition and physical activity. The library is targeted to parents and caregivers of children, ages 1–5 years, and is available in English and Spanish. Content for the messages was derived from American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Bright Futures: Guidelines for Health Supervision of Infants, Children and Adolescents, which uses a developmentally based approach to address children’s health needs in the context of family and community. Healthdata.gov (www.healthdata.gov) is the Department’s open data catalog, housing metadata records on close to 400 HHS datasets. Recently, Healthdata.gov has enabled a publiclyaccessible data application programming interface (API) that allows programmatic access to the TXT4Tots message library.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Subject of Challenge Competition The Apps4TotsHealth Challenge is a call for developers, researchers, and other innovators to make use of the Healthdata.gov data API and integrate the TXT4Tots message library into a new or existing platform. The intent of the challenge is two-fold: 1. Showcase the use of the new data API on Healthdata.gov. 2. Incorporate the TXT4Tots message library into a new or existing platform. It is important to note that stand-alone applications that only use the TXT4Tots message library will not be sufficient to qualify for an award. An app that asks for the child’s birth date and begins texting the parents based on the age of the child would not be innovative. Instead, we are looking to you to use the TXT4Tots library content as part of a larger application, where these messages will augment existing content and provide for a richer application as a result.
