Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To provide
for the establishment 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 to grant to qualified corporations the 
privilege of establishing foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to U.S. 
Customs ports of entry;

Whereas, the City of Rio Rancho, New Mexico (the Grantee), has made
application (filed 5-22-92, FTZ Docket 15-92, 57 FR 24017, 6/5/92) to the
Board, requesting the establishment of a foreign-trade zone at sites in Rio
Rancho, adjacent to the Albuquerque Customs port of entry; and,

Whereas, notice inviting public comment has been given in the Federal
Register and the board has found that the requirements of the Act and
Board's regulations are satisfied, and that approval of the application is
in the public interest;

Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants to the Grantee the privilege of
establishing a foreign-trade zone, designated on the records of the Board
as Foreign-Trade Zone No. 194, at the sites described in the application,
subject to the Act and the Board's regulations, including section 400.28.
