Accordingly, the Commission is instituting proceedings to allow for additional analysis of the proposed rule changes’ consistency with Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,29 which requires that the rules of a national securities exchange promote just and equitable principles of trade, perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, protect investors and the public interest, and not permit unfair discrimination, and with Section 6(b)(8) of the Act,30 which requires that the rules of an exchange not impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. V. Procedure: Request for Written Comments The Commission requests that interested persons provide written submissions of their views, data, and arguments with respect to the concerns identified above, as well as any others they may have with the Proposals. In particular, the Commission invites the written views of interested persons concerning whether the proposed rule changes are inconsistent with Section 6(b)(5) or any other provision of the Act, or the rules and regulation thereunder. Although there do not appear to be any issues relevant to approval or disapproval which would be facilitated by an oral presentation of views, data, and arguments, the Commission will consider, pursuant to Rule 19b-4, any request for an opportunity to make an oral presentation.31 29 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).

This appropriation is similar, but not identical, to the program funded and implemented pursuant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (the ‘‘Recovery Act’’) known as the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery, or ‘‘TIGER Discretionary Grants,’’ program. Because of the similarity in program structure, DOT will continue to refer to the program as ‘‘TIGER Discretionary Grants.’’ As with previous rounds of TIGER, funds for the FY 2014 TIGER program (‘‘TIGER FY 2014’’) are to be awarded on a competitive basis for projects that will have a significant impact on the Nation, a metropolitan area, or a region. Through this notice, DOT is soliciting applications for TIGER Discretionary Grants. In the event that this solicitation does not result in the award and obligation of all available funds, DOT may decide to publish an additional solicitation(s). DATES: You must submit final applications through Grants.gov by April 28, 2014, at 5:00 p.m. EDT (the ‘‘Application Deadline’’). The Grants.gov ‘‘Apply’’ function will open on April 3, 2014, allowing applicants to submit applications. You are strongly encouraged to submit applications in advance of the deadline. Please be aware that you must complete the registration process before submitting an application, and that this process usually takes 2–4 weeks to complete. If interested parties experience difficulties PO 00000 Frm 00105 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 at any point during the registration or application process, please call the Grants.gov Customer Support Hotline at 1–800–518–4726, Monday-Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. EDT. Additional information on applying through Grants.gov is available in Information about Applying for Federal Grants through Grants.gov at www.dot.gov/ TIGER. You must submit applications electronically through Grants.gov. Only applications received electronically through Grants.gov will be deemed properly filed. Instructions for submitting applications through Grants.gov can be found on the TIGER Web site (www.dot.gov/TIGER). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information concerning this notice please contact the TIGER Discretionary Grant program staff via email at TIGERGrants@dot.gov, or call Howard Hill at 202–366–0301. A TDD is available for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing at 202–366–3993. In addition, DOT will regularly post answers to questions and requests for clarifications on DOT’s Web site at www.dot.gov/TIGER. Applicants are encouraged to contact DOT directly rather than rely on third parties to receive information about TIGER Discretionary Grants.
