Whereas, the Indiana Port Commission (the Grantee), has made application

proper form to the Board, requesting the establishment, operation, and
maintenance of a foreign-trade zone at sites in Clark County, Indiana,

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
