Approval for a Temporary Foreign-Trade Zone Site in Granite City, Illinois, 
Within the St. Louis Customs Port of Entry 
 
TEXT:   
Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 18, 
1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
Regulations (15 CFR Part 400), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) 
adopts the following order: 

   Whereas, the Tri-City Regional Port District, Grantee of Foreign-Trade 
Zone No. 31, has applied to the Board for authority to establish, operate, 
and maintain a temporary zone site in Granit City, Illinois, until December 
31, 1983. 

   Whereas, the application was accepted for filing on August 18, 1980, 
and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register on 
August 26, 1980 (45 FR 56853); 

   Whereas, an examiners committee has investigated the application in 
accordance with the Board's regulations and recommends approval;  

   Whereas, the temporary site is needed to provide immediate zone services 
for the business community until the permanent zone, which is presently 
under construction, is ready for occupancy; and 
 
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's Regulations are satisfied, and that 
approval of the application is in the public interest; 

   Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders: 
 
   That the Grantee is authorized to establish, operate and maintain a 
temporary zone site in Granit City, Illinois, in conformity with the 
application filed August 18, 1980, until December 31, 1983. The Grantee 
shall notify the Executive Secretary of the Board for approval prior to 
the commencement of any manufacturing operation within the temporary site. 
The authority given in this Order is subject to settlement locally by the 
District Director of Customs and the District Army Engineer regarding 
compliance with their respective requirements relating to foreign-trade 
zones. 

   Signed at Washington, D.C., this 21st day of November 1980.  

 
Philip M. Klutznick, 
 
   Secretary of Commerce, Chairman and Executive Officer, 
Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
