notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ
Docket 33-94, 59 FR 56034, 11-10-94); and,
    Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the FTZ Act
and Board's regulations are satisfied, and that approval of the

    Now, Therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a
subzone (Subzone 78G) at the Columbia Specialties, Inc., plant in
Columbia, Tennessee, at the location described in the application,
subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including
Sec. 400.28.
