(Agricultural and Specialty Chemicals); West Helena, Arkansas

    Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of

[[Page 58513]]

    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 Board's regulations (15 CFR Part 400) provide for the
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities
cannot serve the specific use involved;
    Whereas, an application from the Little Rock Port Authority,
submitted on behalf of the Arkansas Department of Industrial
Development, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 14, for authority to
establish special-purpose subzone status at the agricultural and
specialty chemical manufacturing facility of Cedar Chemical Corporation
located in West Helena, Arkansas, was filed by the Board on January 19,
1996, and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal
Register (FTZ Docket 6-96, 61 FR 3000, 1/30/96);
    Whereas, on April 15, 1996, the application was amended to withdraw
the manufacture of Trometamol from the scope of the request; and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the
examiner's report, and finds that the requirements of the FTZ Act and
Board's regulations are satisfied, and that approval of the
application, as amended, is in the public interest;
    Now, Therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a
subzone (Subzone 14B) at the Cedar Chemical Corporation plant in West
Helena, Arkansas, at the location described in the application, subject
to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 4th day of November 1996.
