   Resolution and Order Approving the Application of the Board of Harbor 
Commissioners of the City of Long Beach, CA for a Special-Purpose Subzone at
the Motorhome Recreational Vehicle Plant of National RV, Inc., Perris, CA  
 
TEXT: Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, DC  
 
 
Resolution and Order 
 
   Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 
18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the
Board) has adopted the following Resolution and Order: 
 
   The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:  
 
   After consideration of the application of the Board of Harbor 
Commissioners of the City of Long Beach, California, grantee of FTZ 50, 
filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (FTZ Board) on March 20, 1990, 
requesting special-purpose subzone status at the motorhome/recreational 
vehicle plant of National RV, Inc. (NRV), in Perris, California, adjacent 
to the Los Angeles/Long Beach Customs port of entry, the FTZ Board, finding 
that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended, and the 
FTZ Board's regulations would be satisfied, and that the proposal would be 
in the public interest provided approval is subject to a restriction that 
requires NRV to elect privileged foreign status on shipments of foreign 
pickup truck cab/chassis should shipments of such items admitted to the 
subzone exceed 5,000 units in a calendar year, approves the application 
subject to the foreign restriction.  
 
   The Secretary of Commerce, as Chairman and Executive Officer of the 
Board, is hereby authorized to issue an appropriate Board Order. 
 
   Grant of Authority To Establish a Foreign-Trade Subzone in Perris, CA, 
Adjacent to the Los Angeles Port of Entry 
 
   Whereas, by an act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To provide
for the establishment, operation, and maintenance of foreign-trade zones in
ports of entry of the United States, to expedite and encourage foreign 
commerce, and for other purposes," as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) (the 
Act), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) is authorized and empowered
to grant to corporations the privilege of establishing, operating, and 
maintaining foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to ports of entry under the 
jurisdiction of the United States;  
 
   Whereas, the Board's regulations (15 CFR 400.304) provide for the 
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities 
cannot serve the specific use involved, and where a significant public 
benefit will result; 
 
   Whereas, the Board of Harbor Commissioners of the City of Long Beach, 
California, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 50, has made application (filed 
March 26, 1990, FTZ Docket 13-90, 55 FR 12695), in due and proper form to 
the Board for authority to establish a special-purpose subzone at the 
motorhome/recreational vehicle plant of National RV, Inc., located in Perris,
California, adjacent to the Los Angeles/Long Beach Customs port of entry;  
 
   Whereas, notice of said application has been given and published, and 
full opportunity has been afforded all interested parties to be heard; and,
 
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the 
Board's regulations would be satisfied and that the proposal would be in 
the public interest if approval were given subject to the restriction in 
the resolution accompanying this action; 
 
   Now, therefore, in accordance with the application filed March 26, 1990,
the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the National 
RV plant, designated on the records of the Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone 
No. 50C at the location mentioned above and more particularly described on 
the maps and drawings accompanying the application, said grant of authority
being subject to the provisions and restrictions of the Act and regulations 
issued thereunder, to the restriction in the resolution accompanying this 
action, and also to the following express conditions and limitations: 
 
   Activation of the subzone shall be commenced within a reasonable time 
from the date of issuance of the grant, and prior thereto any necessary 
permits shall be obtained from federal, state, and municipal authorities.  
 
   Officers and employees of the United States shall have free and 
unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade subzone facility in 
the performance of their official duties. 
 
   The grant shall not be construed to relieve responsible parties from 
liability for injury or damage to the person or property of others 
occasioned by the contruction, operation, or maintenance of said subzone, 
and in no event shall the United States be liable therefor. 
 
   The grant is further subject to settlement locally by the District of 
Customs and the Army District Engineer with the Grantee regarding compliance
with their respective requirements for the protection of the revenue of the 
United States and the installation of suitable facilities. 
 
   In witness whereof, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board has caused its name 
to be signed and its seal to be affixed hereto by its Chairman and Executive
Officer at Washington, DC, this 21st day of August, 1990, pursuant to Order 
of the Board.
