    Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade

    Whereas, the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Board (the Board) authorized

in Lake Charles, Louisiana, in 1989, subject to two conditions (Subzone
87B, Board Order 420, 54 FR 27660, 6/30/89);
    Whereas, the Lake Charles Harbor & Terminal District, grantee of

(filed 6/12/95, A(32b1)-9-95; FTZ Doc. 38-95, assigned 7/19/95) of the

the refinery complex of Amoco Oil Company, Texas City, Texas (Board
Order 731, 60 FR 13118, 3/10/95); and,
    Whereas, the request has been reviewed and the Assistant Secretary

Sec. 400.32(b)(1), concurs in the recommendation of the Executive
Secretary, and approves the request;
