(B) by adding at the end the following:

“(3) INITIAL DETERMINATION.—The Council may not vote on a proposed determination with respect to a U.S. nonbank financial company under paragraph (1) unless the Council first determines, in consultation with the company and the primary financial regulatory agency with respect to the company, that a different action by the Council or the agency (including the application of new or heightened standards and safeguards under section 120), or by the company under a written plan that is submitted promptly to the Council, is impracticable or insufficient to mitigate the threat that the company could pose to the financial stability of the United States.”; and
