Jefferson County Riverport Authority for a Special-Purpose Foreign-Trade 
Subzone for Ford in Louisville, Kentucky 
TEXT: Resolution and Order 
   Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, D.C.  
   Pursuant to the authority granted in the foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Board has adopted the following Resolution and Order: 
   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  
   After consideration of the application of the Louisville and Jefferson 
County Riverport Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 29 in Louisville, 
filed December 4, 1983, requesting special-purpose subzone satus for the 
auto manufacturing facility of Ford Motor Company in Louisville, Kentucky, 
within the Louisville Customs port of entry, the Board, finding that the 
requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's 
regulations are satisfied, and that the proposal is in the public interest,
approves the application.  

   The Secretary of Commerce, as Chairman and Executive Officer of the 
Board, is hereby authorized to issue a grant of authority and appropriate 
Board Order.  
   Grant of Authority To Establish a Foreign-Trade Subzone for Ford in 
Louisville, Kentucky 
   Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To 
provide for the establishment, operation, and maintenance of foreign-trade 
zones in ports of entry of the United States, to expedite and encourage 
foreign commerce, and for other purposes", as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) 
(the Act), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) is authorized and 
empowered to grant to corporations the privilege of establishing, 
operating, and maintaining foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to ports of 
entry under the jurisdiction of the United States;  
   Whereas, the Board's regulations (15 CFR 400.304) provide for the 
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities 
cannot serve the specific use involved, and where a significant public 
benefit will result; 
   Whereas, the Louisville and Jefferson County Riverport Authority, 
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 29, Louisville, has made application 
(filed December 4, 1983, Docket No. 46-83, 48 FR 56620) in due and proper 
form to the Board for authority to establish a special-purpose subzone at 
Ford Motor Company's vehicle manufacturing plant in Louisville, Kentucky, 
within the Louisville Customs port of entry; 
   Whereas, notice of said application has been given and published, and 
full opportunity has been afforded all interested parties to be heard; and,
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the 
Board's regulations are satisfied; 
   Now, therefore, in accordance with the application filed December 4, 
1983, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at Ford's 
Louisville, Kentucky, plant, designated on the records of the Board as 
Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 29B at the location mentioned above and more 
particularly described on the maps and drawings accompanying the 
application, said grant of authority being subject to the provisions and 
restrictions of the Act and the Regulations issued thereunder, to the same 
extent as though the same were fully set forth herein, and also to the 
following express conditions and limitations:  
   Activation of the subzone shall be commenced within a reasonable time 
from the date of issuance of the grant, and prior thereto, any necessary 
permits shall be obtained from Federal, State, and municipal authorities.
   Officers and employees of the United States shall have free and 
unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade subzone in the 
performance of their official duties.  

   The grant shall not be construed to relieve responsible parties from 
liability for injury or damage to the person or property of others 
occasioned by the construction, operation, or maintenance of said subzone, 
and in no event shall the United States be liable therefor. 
   The grant is further subject to settlement locally by the District 
Director of Customs and District Army Engineer with the Grantee regarding 
compliance with their respective requirements for the protection of the 
revenue of the United States and the installation of suitable facilities.
   In witness whereof, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has caused its name 
to be signed and its seal to be affixed hereto by its Chairman and 
Executive Officer or his delegate at Washington, D.C. this 3rd day of July 
1984 pursuant to Order of the Board. 
   Dated: July 3, 1984.
