   Foreign-Trade Zone 94 -- Laredo, Texas; Application for Expansion  
 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the City of Laredo, Texas, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 94,
requesting authority to expand the zone to include additional acreage in the
Laredo area, within the Laredo Customs port of entry. The application was 
submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as 
amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part
400). It was formally filed on April 28, 1989. 
 
   The Laredo zone was approved on November 22, 1983 (Board Order 235, 48 
FR 53737, 11/29/83), and presently covers 212 acres at four sites in the 
Laredo area. Sites 1 and 2 (142 acres) are located on publicly owned 
property at the Laredo International Airport (LIA Site). Site 3 (20 acres),
owned by the Texas-Mexican Railway, is located on Highway 359 in Webb 
County. Site 4 (50 acres), owned by Killam Oil Company (Killam Site), is 
located at 12800 Old Mines Road about two miles northwest of the city 
limits. This site was approved as part of a boundary modification in 
May 1988. 
 
   The grantee has requested authority to expand the airport site to include
the entire 1,600-acre airport complex, and to expand Site 4 to include the 
entire 1,400-acre Killam tract. The authority is requested subject to a 
condition that would limit the total area eligible for activation to 500 
acres at the LIA Site and to 550 acres at the Killam Site. Manufacturing 
activity would require further FTZ Board approval on a case-by-case basis.
 
   The expansion is being requested to provide greater flexibility in 
locating prospective zone users at both sites in an effort to assist the 
City's economic development efforts. 
 
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The 
committee consists of: Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones 
Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; Paul Rimmer, Deputy
Assistant Regional Commissioner, U.S. Customs Service, Southwest Region, 
5850 San Felipe Street, Houston, Texas 77057-3012; and Colonel John E. 
Schaufelberger, District, Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Fort Worth, 
P.O. Box 17300, Forth Worth, Texas 76102-0300. 
 
   Comments concerning the proposed expansion 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 July 5, 1989.  
 
   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of
