Approval for Expansion of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 31, Granite City, IL, 
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 (Port District), Grantee of
Foreign-Trade Zone No. 31, has applied to the Board for authority to expand
its general-purpose zone to include an additional site in Granite City, 
Illinois, within the St. Louis Customs port of entry; 
   Whereas, the application was accepted for filing on September 7, 1984, 
and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register on 
September 21, 1984 (Docket No. 42-84, 49 FR 37132); 
   Whereas, an examiners committee has investigated the application in 
accordance with the Board's regulations and recommends approval;  
   Whereas, the expansion is necessary to provide zone services to new 
tenants whose operations cannot be accommodated within existing zone space; 
   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 expand its zone in accordance with the
application filed September 7, 1984. The Grantee shall notify the Executive
Secretary of the Board for approval prior to the commencement of any 
manufacturing operations. 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 16th day of January 1985.
