    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 Zones Board 
(the Board) adopts the following Order:
    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

establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities 
cannot serve the specific use involved;
    Whereas, an application from the Little Rock Port Authority on 
behalf of the Industrial Development Commission of the State of 
Arkansas, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 14, for authority to establish 
special-purpose subzone status at the steel pipe fabrication facility 
of Mid States Pipe Fabricating, Inc., in El Dorado, Arkansas, was filed 
by the Board on March 25, 1996, and notice inviting public comment was 
given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 25-96, 61 FR 15216, 4/5/96; 
amended, 3/12/97); 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 
is in the public interest;
    Now, Therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a 
subzone (Subzone 14C) at the Mid States Pipe Fabricating, Inc., plant 
in El Dorado, Arkansas, at the location described in the application, 
subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including 
Sec. 400.28, and further subject to a restriction requiring that 
foreign status merchandise admitted to the subzone shall be exported.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 25th day of June 1997.

Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration
