Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
Foreign-Trade Zone 68, El Paso, Texas; Application for Expansion  
 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the City of El Paso, Texas (the City), grantee of Foreign-
Trade Zone 68, requesting authority to expand its zone in El Paso, within 
the El Paso Customs port of entry. The application was submitted pursuant 
to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 
81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was 
formally filed on November 30, 1983. The applicant is authorized to make 
this proposal under Article 1446.9 of Vernon's Annotated Civil Statutes of 
Texas. 
 
   On April 14, 1981, the Board authorized the El Paso International Airport 
Board to establish a foreign-trade zone for the El Paso area (Board Order 
174, 46 FR 22919, April 22, 1981). In September 1982, the Board 
subsequently approved a transfer of the grant to the City (Board Order 193, 
47 FR 45065, Oct. 13, 1982). The project covers 59 acres within the City's 
589-acre Butterfield Trail Industrial Park (BTIP) at the El Paso 
International Airport.  
 
   The City is now proposing to expand the scope of its zone boundaries. 
This will allow zone users to be located througout the industrial park, 
subject to Customs security requirements. The zone project will continue to 
be administered for the City by the Airport Manager. 
 
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiner committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The 
committee consists of: John J. Da Ponte, Jr. (Chairman), Director, 
Foreign-Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C. 
20230; Donald Gough, Deputy Assistant Regional Commissioner, U.S. Customs 
Service, Southwest Region, 5850 San Felipe Street, Houston, TX 77057; and 
Colonel Julian E. Pylant, Jr., District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer 
District Albuquerque, P.O. Box 1580, Albuquerque, NM 87103. 
 
   Comments concerning the proposed zone expansion are invited in writing 
from interested persons and organizations. They should be addressed to the 
Board's Executive Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or 
before January 12, 1984.
