   Foreign-Trade Zones Board; Approval for Expansion of Foreign-Trade Zone
12, McAllen, TX 
TEXT: Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Board Regulations (15 CFR part 400), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the 
Board) adopts the following Resolution and Order: 
   Whereas, the McAllen Economic Development Corporation, Grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone No. 12, has applied to the Board for authority to expand 
its general-purpose zone to include a site at the McAllen-Miller 
International Airport, McAllen, Texas, area, within the Hidalgo Customs 
port of entry;  
   Whereas, the application was accepted for filing on September 30, 1988, 
and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register on 
October 17, 1988 (Docket 31-88, 53 FR 40484); 
   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 McAllen 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 September 30, 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.  
   Signed at Washington, DC, this 19th day of June, 1990.
