Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 53 / Monday, March 19, 2018 / Notices Amendments to Hearing Procedures On March 13, 2018, the Council adopted amendments to the hearing procedures, primarily to add hearings conducted under section 117 of the Dodd-Frank Act to the scope of the procedures. The Council has posted the amended hearing procedures on its website at https://www.treasury.gov/ initiatives/fsoc/designations/Pages/ Hearing-Procedures.aspx and on http:// www.regulations.gov. Although the amendments were effective when adopted, the Council is requesting comments on the procedures and may make further amendments to reflect any comments received. Section 117 of the Dodd-Frank Act applies to an entity that was a bank holding company having total consolidated assets equal to or greater than $50 billion as of January 1, 2010, that received financial assistance under or participated in the Capital Purchase Plan established under the Troubled Asset Relief Program authorized by the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, and to any successor entity (as defined by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board of Governors) in consultation with the Council) to such a bank holding company.4 Section 117(b) of the DoddFrank Act provides that such an entity shall, if it ceases to be a bank holding company, be treated as a nonbank financial company subject to supervision by the Board of Governors as if the Council had made a determination under section 113 of the Dodd-Frank Act with respect to that entity.5 Section 117(c) of the DoddFrank Act provides that an entity may request, in writing, an opportunity for a written or oral hearing before the Council to appeal its treatment as a nonbank financial company supervised by the Board of Governors.6 The Council amended the hearing procedures to add hearings conducted under section 117 of the Dodd-Frank Act to the scope of the procedures. Specifically, the Council amended the definition of ‘‘petitioner’’ in section 2 of the hearing procedures to add a reference to entities that are appealing their treatment pursuant to section 117 of the Dodd-Frank Act. Section 3(b) of the hearing procedures was amended to provide that a petitioner that is appealing its treatment pursuant to section 117 may request a hearing by submitting a written request to the Chairperson of the Council. Section 5(b)(3)(ii) of the hearing procedures was 4 12 U.S.C. 5327. U.S.C. 5327(b). 6 12 U.S.C. 5327(c). 5 12 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:43 Mar 16, 2018 Jkt 244001 amended to provide that any petitioner, including a petitioner appealing its treatment pursuant to section 117 of the Dodd-Frank Act, may submit additional written materials to supplement any materials presented during an oral hearing not later than 7 days after the date of that hearing. A new paragraph (4) was added to section 5(b) to provide that, in cases where an oral hearing is held under section 113 or 117 of the Dodd-Frank Act, the date of the hearing shall be deemed to be the date on which the Council has received any supplemental materials that are timely submitted after the oral hearing. The definition of ‘‘hearing date’’ in section 2 was accordingly deleted as unnecessary. To reflect the addition of hearings conducted under section 117 of the Dodd-Frank Act to the scope of the procedures, conforming changes were made to sections 1(a) and (b) (regarding the authority for and scope of the procedures); section 4(b) (regarding the submission of written materials); section 7 (regarding the denial and dismissal of a hearing); and section 8(a) (providing that the substantive standards for Council review of petitions is not affected by the hearing procedures). Finally, the Council made certain non-substantive or technical changes to update the hearing procedures. Specifically, the definitions of ‘‘hearing’’ and ‘‘oral hearing’’ in section 2 were deleted as unnecessary. Section 5(c)(2) was amended to clarify that, even when the Council determines to conduct an oral hearing through representatives, each member of the Council is entitled to participate in the oral hearing in lieu of appointing a representative. The former section 5(d)(1), providing that if the Council grants a request for an oral hearing, the hearing shall be conducted through both the submission of written materials and an oral hearing, was omitted from the hearing procedures as redundant with other provisions in the procedures. The former section 5(d)(2), providing for the conduct of an oral hearing, was redesignated as section 5(c)(3) and amended to add, consistent with the Council’s past practice, that the Chairperson of the Council, his representative, or the Hearing Clerk (as defined in the procedures) will preside at an oral hearing. Section 5(e), regarding transcripts of oral hearings, was redesignated as section 5(d) and amended to remove the reference to the petitioner’s right to ‘‘inspect’’ a transcript or other recording of the oral argument, leaving the reference to the petitioner’s right to receive a copy of the transcript or other recording and to submit corrections.

SUMMARY: Abstract: The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) is focused on developing and disseminating health information to the public. ODPHP faces an increasingly urgent interest in finding effective ways to communicate health information to America’s diverse population. ODPHP strives to be responsive to the needs of America’s diverse audiences while simultaneously serving all Americans across a range of channels, from print to new communication technologies. To carry out prevention information efforts, ODPHP is committed to conducting formative and usability research to provide guidance on the development and implementation of their communication and education efforts. The information collected will be used to improve communication, products, and services that support key office activities including: Healthy People, Dietary Guidelines for Americans, Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, healthfinder.gov, and increasing health care quality and patient safety. ODPHP communicates through its websites (www.healthfinder.gov , www.HealthyPeople.gov, www.health.gov) and through other channels including social media, print materials, interactive training modules, and reports. This request builds on previous formative research approaches to place more emphasis on Web-based data collection to allow greater geographical diversity among respondents, to decrease respondent burden, and to save government costs. Data collection will be qualitative and quantitative and may include in-depth interviews, focus groups, web-based surveys, omnibus surveys, card sorting, and various forms of usability testing of materials and interactive tools to assess the public’s understanding of disease prevention and health promotion content, responses to prototype materials, and barriers to effective use. The program is requesting a 3-year clearance. Likely Respondents: Respondents are likely to be either consumers or health professionals. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES TOTAL ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Number of respondents Type of respondent Consumers Consumers Consumers Consumers Consumers (screening & omnibus survey) .....................................................
