TEXT: Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of

Board has adopted the following Resolution and Order: 
 
   Whereas, the Port of Seattle Commission, Grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 
No. 5, has applied to the Board for authority to expand its general-purpose 
zone to include sites at the Seattle seaport and the Seattle-Tacoma 
International Airport, Kings County, Washington, within the Seattle Customs 
port of entry;  
 
   Whereas, the application was accepted for filing on February 9, 1988, and 
notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register on February
18, 1988 (Docket 9-88, 53 FR 4865); 
 
   Whereas, an examiners committe has investigated the application in 
accordance with the Board's regulations and recommends approval; 
 
   Whereas, the expansion is necessary to improve and expand zone services 
in the Seattle area; and, 
 
   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 February 9, 1988. The grant does not include authority for
manufacturing operations, and the Grantee shall notify the Board for
