   Disapproval of Application of the Illinois International Port District 
for Subzone Status at E.J. Brach & Sons Plant in Chicago, IL  
TEXT: Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 3, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Board Regulations (15 CFR part 400), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the 
Board) adopts the following order: 
   Whereas, the Illinois International Port District, Grantee of Foreign-
Trade Zone 22, has made application (filed September 26, 1989, FTZ Docket 
19-89, 54 FR 42317) to the Board for authority to establish a special-
purpose subzone at the confectionary manufacturing plant of E.J. Brach & 
Sons, Inc. (subsidiary of Jacobs Suchard, Inc.) in Chicago, Illinois; 
   Whereas, notice of said application has been given and published, and 
full opportunity has been afforded all interested parties to be heard;  
   Whereas, the proposal calls for the processing of significant amounts 
of foreign ex-quota sugar under foreign-trade zone procedures;  
   Whereas, the Board has reviewed the proposal in the light of the 
domestic sugar price support program administered by the U.S. Department 
of Agriculture (USDA), taking into account the views and recommendation of 
USDA in opposition because of the adverse consequences that approval of 
the application would have on the sugar program; 
   Whereas, the Board has considered the economic implications for Brach 
and other domestic candy producers, taking into account the negative 
consequences approval would have on other producers unless they receive 
similar approvals; and, 
   Whereas, the Board has determined that approval would not be in the 
public interest because such action would result in adverse consequences 
to the domestic sugar price support program and to other domestic candy 
producers not operating under zone procedures; 
   Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders: 
   That the application filed September 26, 1989 (FTZ Docket 19-89) is 
   Signed at Washington, DC, this 11th day of May, 1990.  
Eric I. Garfinkel, 
   Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Chairman, 
Committee of Alternates, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
