Panama City Port Authority; Application 

TEXT: This notice concerns the application of the Panama City Port 
Authority, a Florida municipal corporation, filed by the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Board on January 4, 1980, requesting authority to establish a 
foreign-trade zone within the applicant's port complex and industrial park 
in Port Panama City, Florida (45 FR 2077, 1-10-80). The proposal includes 
a large diameter steel pipe plant.  

   A public hearing was held on the matter on February 12, 1980, and in 
March the open record period for comments was extended to April 18, 1980 
(45 FR 18045, 3-20-80). During the open record period a number of comments 
in opposition were received from the domestic steel industry. 

   In order to assist the Examiners Committee in its evaluation of the 
proposal, the Board's Executive Secretary requested from the Bureau of 
Industrial Economics, U.S. Department of Commerce (BIE), an economic 
analysis as to the impact on the national economy and competing domestic 
industry of allowing the steel pipe plant to operate under foreign-trade 
zone procedures. The analysis was completed on August 14, 1980. 
   Notice is hereby given that the application record has been reopened 
to parties of record for comments on the BIE economic impact report. 
Comments should be submitted with 12 copies and must be received or 
postmarked by September 22, 1980. 
   The report is available for inspection at the Office of the Executive 
Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th 
and Constitution Ave., N.W., Room 6886-B, Washington, D.C. 20230. 
Requests for copies may be made by calling the office (202) 377-2862.  

   Dated: August 19, 1980. 

John J. Da Ponte, Jr., 
   Executive Secretary.
