                                   54 FR 650 
                                January 9, 1989 
   Foreign-Trade Zone 83; Huntsville, AL; Application for Expansion  
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Huntsville-Madison County Airport Authority (the Airport 
Authority), grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 83, requesting authority to 
expand the zone to include additional acreage at the Huntsville 
International Airport, within the Huntsville 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 December 22, 1988. 
   The Huntsville zone was approved on February 24, 1983 (Board Order 209, 
48 FR 9052, March 3, 1983, and presently covers 1,313 acres at the airport. 
The grantee has requested authority to include five adjacent tracts (234 
acres) located at the intersection of Wall Triana Highway and James Record 
Road. The expansion is being requested because much of the area presently 
authorized for zone activity is being utilized for operations that do not 
presently require zone procedures, and the grantee needs more space to 
accommodate interested zone users. 
   No manufacturing approvals are being sought in the application. Such 
approvals would be requested from the Board on a case-by-case basis.  
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The 
committee consists of: Joseph Lowry (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones Staff, 
U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; David L. Willette, 
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, South Central Region, 150 North 
Royal, Suite 3004, P.O. Box 2748, Mobile, Alabama 36652; and Colonel 
Edward A. Starbird, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District, 
Nashville, P.O. Box 1070, Nashville, Tennessee 37202-1070. 
   Comments concerning the proposed expansion are invited in writing from 
interested parties. They should be addressed to the Board's Executive 
Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or before February 21, 
   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of
