   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:

York, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 90, filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Board (the Board) on May 2, 1986, requesting special-purpose subzone status

grant to corporations the privilege of establishing, operating, and

full opportunity has been afforded all interested parties to be heard; and
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the 
Board's regulations are satisfied; 
   Now, therefore, in accordance with the application filed May 2, 1986, the
Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at Chrysler's plant 
in Onondaga County, designated on the records of the Board as Foreign-Trade
Subzone No. 90B at the location mentioned above and more particularly 
described on the maps and drawings accompanying the application, said grant
of authority being subject to the provisions and restrictions of the Act 
and the Regulations issued thereunder, to the same extent as though the

permits shall be obtained from Federal, State, and municipal authorities.
   Officers and employees of the United States shall have free and 
unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade subzone in the 
performance of their official duties. 
   The grant shall not be construed to relieve responsible parties from 
liability for injury or damage to the person or property of others 
occasioned by the construction, operation, or maintenance of said subzone,
and in no event shall the United States be liable therefor.
