Resolution and Order Approving the Application of the Foreign-Trade Zone of
Wisconsin, Ltd., for Special-Purpose Subzones in Janesville and Oak Creek, 
WI. Adjacent to the Milwaukee Customs Port of Entry 
TEXT: Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, D.C.  
Resolution and Order 
   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 Foreign Trade Zone of 
Wisconsin, Ltd., grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 41, filed with the Foreign-
Trade Zones Board (the Board) on April 27, 1984, requesting special-purpose
subzone status for the General Motors Corporation (GM) auto manufacturing 
plant in Janesville, Wisconsin (Doc. 17-84), and for GM's electronic 
products manufacturing plant in Oak Creek, Wisconsin (Doc. 18-84), adjacent
to the Milwaukee 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 Foreign-Trade Subzones in Janesville and 
Oak Creek, WI, Adjacent to the Milwaukee Customs Port of Entry  
   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 Foreign Trade Zone of Wisconsin, Ltd., grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone No. 41, has made application (filed April 27, 1984, 
Docket Nos. 17 and 18-84, 49 FR 18882) in due and proper form to the Board 
for authority to establish special-purpose subzones at the auto electronic 
components manufacturing plants of General Motors Corporation in 
Janesville and Oak Creek, Wisconsin, adjacent to the Milwaukee 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 April 27, 1984,
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of subzones at the General 
Motors plants in Janesville and Oak Creek, Wisconsin, designated on the 
records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone Nos. 41C and 41D at the 
locations 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 subzones 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 subzones 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 subzones,
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 2nd day of 
April 1985, pursuant to Order of the Board.
