   Resolution and Order Approving the Application of the Natrona County 
International Airport Board of Trustees for a General-Purpose Foreign-Trade 
Zone in the Casper, WY, Area 
 
TEXT: Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, DC.  
 
 
Resolution and Order 
 
   Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June
18, 1934, as amended (l9 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 Natrona County International
Airport Board of Trustees, filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the 
Board) on November 2, 1987, and amended on March 22, 1988, requesting a 
grant of authority for establishing, operating, and maintaining a general-
purpose foreign-trade zone in Natrona County, Wyoming (Casper area), at the 
Natrona County International Airport, a Customs User Fee Airport, the 
Board, finding that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as 
amended, and the Board's regulations would be satisfied if approval is 
initially given for a restricted period until the issue of reimbursability 
at Customs user fee airports is resolved, approves the application for one 
year from the date of activation, subject to extension upon application to 
the Board.  
 
   As the proposal involves open space on which buildings may be constructed
by parties other than the grantee, this approval includes authority to the 
grantee to permit the erection of such buildings, pursuant to @ 400.815 of 
the Board's regulations, as are necessary to carry out the zone proposal, 
providing that prior to its granting such permission it shall have the 
concurrences of the local District Director of Customs, the U.S. Army 
District Engineer, when appropriate, and the Board's Executive Secretary. 
Further, the grantee shall notify the Board for approval prior to the 
commencement of any manufacturing operation within the zone. 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, Operate, and Maintain a Foreign-Trade Zone
in the Casper, WY, Area 
 
   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 Natrona County International Airport Board of Trustees (the 
Grantee) has made application (filed November 2, 1987, FTZ Docket 30-87, 52
FR 43780, and amended March 22, 1988, 53 FR 10136) in due and proper form 
to the Board, requesting the establishment, operation, and maintenance of a 
foreign-trade zone in Natrona County, Wyoming (Casper area), at the Natrona 
County International Airport, a Customs User Fee Airport;  
 
   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 (15 CFR Part 400) would be satisfied if approval is 
initially given subject to the time limit in the resolution accompanying 
this action;  
 
   Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants to the Grantee the privilege of 
establishing, operating, and maintaining a foreign-trade zone, designated 
on the records of the Board as Zone No. 157, at the location mentioned 
above and more particularly described on the maps and drawings accompanying 
the application in Exhibits IX and X, subject to the provisions, conditions,
and restrictions of the Act and the regulations issued thereunder, the 
one-year time limit in the resolution accompanying this action, and also 
the following express conditions and limitations: 
 
   Operation of the foreign-trade zone shall be commenced by the Grantee 
within a reasonable time from the date of issuance of the grant, and prior 
thereto the Grantee shall obtain all necessary permits from federal, state, 
and municipal authorities. 
 
   The Grantee shall allow officers and employees of the United States free 
and unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade zone site in 
the performance of their official duties. 
 
   The grant does not include authority for manufacturing operations, and 
the Grantee shall notify the Board for approval prior to the commencement 
of any manufacturing operations within the zone. 
 
   The grant shall not be construed to relieve the Grantee from liability 
for injury or damage to the person or property of others occasioned by the 
construction, operation, or maintenance of said zone, 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 Army District 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 at Washington, DC, this 19th day of January 1989, pursuant to Order 
of the Board.
