     Foreign-Trade Zone 89--Clark County, NV; Application for Expansion

                           Thursday, May 6, 1993

An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the 
Board) by the Nevada Development Authority (NDA), grantee of FTZ 89, 
requesting authority to expand its zone in Clark County, Nevada, within the 
Las Vegas 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 20, 1993.

FTZ 89 was approved on November 7, 1983 (Board Order 227, 48 FR 51665;
11/10/83), and expanded on December 4, 1989 (Board Order 452, 54 FR 50787;
12/11/89). It currently consists of six sites in Clark County, Nevada: Site
1 (23 acres)--Las Vegas Convention Center, Clark County; Site 2 (100,000
sq. ft.)--Cashman Field Convention Center, Las Vegas; Site 3 two parcels
(317 acres and 120,000 sq. ft.)--within the Hughes Airport Center
industrial park, adjacent to McCarron International Airport; Site 4 (37
acres)--North Las Vegas Business Center, North Las Vegas; Site 5 (526
acres)--AMPAC Development Company Business Park, Clark County; and Site 6
(10 acres)--within the 160-acre Las Vegas International Air Cargo Center
(LVIACC) at McCarran International Airport, Clark County (A-40-91,
NDA is now requesting authority to expand its general-purpose zone Site 6
to include the entire 160-acre LVIACC. The center is owned by the county
and the Nevada International Trade Corporation is the designated zone
operator at this site. The proposal also includes a request to restore zone
status to a parcel (10 acres) that was deleted from the AMPAC site (Site 5) 
in 1992. No manufacturing requests are being made at this time. Such 
approvals would be requested from the Board on a case-by-case basis.

In accordance with the Board's regulations (as revised, 56 FR 50790-50808,
10- 8-91), a member of the FTZ Staff has been designated examiner to
investigate the application and report to the Board.

Public comment on the application is invited from interested parties.
Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board's
Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their
receipt is July 6, 1993. Rebuttal comments in response to material
