   Application for Extension of FTZ Subzone Status for SZ's 22C, 22D, and 
22E, Power Packaging, Inc., Plants, Chicago, IL Area 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Illinois International Port District (IIPD), grantee of 
FTZ 22, requesting a 2-year time extension for FTZ subzone status at three 
food processing plants of Power Packaging, Inc. (PPI) in the Chicago, 
Illinois, area. The application was formally filed on April 6, 1989. 
   In March 1987, the Board authorized subzone status for the PPI plants 
(Board Order 347, 52 FR 10246, 3/31/87) for a two-year period (from date 
of activation), subject to extension. Subzone activity is restricted to the 
production of sugar-containing products subject to the sugar quota program.  
   Zone procedures are being used for entries on the foreign sugar used to 
produce cake and flour mixes, breakfast cereals, pudding mixes, soup mixes, 
and other edible preparations. Customs entries are made on the finished 
products, and the sugar is ex-quota. 
   In requesting the extension, PPI indicates that subzone status has helped
it compete with lower priced sugar-containing imports, preserving employment
at its Chicago plants as had been contended in the original application.  
   Subzone authority is due to expire on June 29, 1989, and the FTZ Board 
is considering a temporary time extension of up to one year, during which 
time the proposal would be evaluated as part of an overall review of 
sugar-related activity in zones, which would be the subject of a separate 
Federal Register notice. 
   The application for a 2-year extension is being reviewed by the FTZ 
Staff. Comments are invited in writing from interested parties. They should
be addressed to the Board's Executive Secretary at the address below and 
postmarked on or before May 23, 1989. 
   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of 
the following locations: 
U.S. Department of Commerce, District Office, 
1406 Mid Continental Plaza Building,
