   Approval for Expansion of Foreign-Trade Zone 62, Brownsville, TX  
TEXT: Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 USC 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
adopts the following Resolution and Order: 
   Whereas, the Brownsville Navigation District, Grantee of Foreign-Trade 
Zone No. 62, has applied to the Board for authority to expand its general-
purpose zone to include two sites near Valley International Airport in 
Harlingen, Texas, within the Brownsville Customs port of entry; 
   Whereas, the application was accepted for filing on February 24, 1988, 
and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register on 
March 8, 1988 (Docket 12-88, 53 FR 7382); 
   Whereas, an examiners committee 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 Brownsville-Harlingen 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 24, 1988. The grant does not include authority 
for manufacturing operations, and the Grantee shall notify the Board for 
approval prior to the commencement of any manufacturing or assembly 
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.
