   Whereas, by an act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To provide

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 Greater Dayton Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone 100, has made application (filed September 28, 1987, FTZ 
Docket 18-87, 52 FR 37809), in due and proper form to the Board for 
authority to establish a special-purpose subzone at the motor vehicle 
components manufacturing plant of Chrysler Corporation in Dayton, Ohio, 
within the Dayton 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 September 28, 
1987, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the 
Chrysler plant in Dayton, designated on the records of the Board as

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 regulations issued thereunder, and also to the 
following express conditions and limitations:

obtain all necessary permits 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 the Grantee 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 Army District Engineer with the Grantee
