(FTZ) Board (the Board) by the Louisville and Jefferson County 
Riverport Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 29, requesting 
authority to expand FTZ 29, Louisville, Kentucky, within the 
Louisville Customs port of entry. The application was submitted

(15 CFR Part 400). It was formally filed on August 12, 1997. 
   FTZ 29 was approved on May 26, 1977 (Board Order 118, 42 
FR 29323, 6/8/77), and expanded on January 31, 1989 (Board Order 
429, 54 FR 5992, 2/7/89). The zone project currently consists 
of two sites in the Louisville, Kentucky area: Site 1 (1,319 
acres)-located within the Riverport Industrial Complex; and 
Site 2 (675 acres)-located at the junction of Gene Snyder Freeway 
and La Grange Road in eastern Jefferson County. In addition, 
an application is currently pending with the Board for three

   The applicant is now requesting authority to add yet another 
site: Proposed Site 6 (205 acres)-along Johnstown Road. The 
site is adjacent to the Riverport Industrial Complex (Site 1), 
and is also owned by the applicant. No specific manufacturing 
authority is being requested at this time. Such requests would 
be made to the Board on a case-by-case basis.
