TEXT: 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 Louisville and Jefferson
County Riverport Authority, grantee of FTZ 29, filed with the Foreign-Trade
Zones Board (the Board) on June 4, 1986, requesting special-purpose subzone
status for the automobile manufacturing plant of Toyota Motor Manufacturing,
U.S.C. Inc., in Scott County, Kentucky, adjacent to 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 in Scott County,
   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

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, has made application (filed June 4, 
1986, Docket 19-86, 51 FR 21946) in due and proper form to the Board for 
authority to establish a special-purpose subzone at the automobile 
manufacturing plant of Toyota Motor Manufacturing, U.S.A., Inc. (Toyota), 
in Scott County, Kentucky, adjacent to the Louisville Customs port of 
   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 June 4, 1986, 
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the Toyota 
plant in Scott County, Kentucky, designated on the records of the Board as 
Foreign-Trade Subzone No. 29E 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 the 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 

   In witness whereof, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has caused its name to

Officer or his delegate at Washington, DC, this 18th day of December, 1987,
pursuant to Order of the Board.
