An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) by the Yuma County Airport Authority, Inc., grantee of FTZ 219, requesting authority to expand its general-purpose zone site to include an additional parcel at the Yuma International Airport. 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 July 20, 2000.

FTZ 219 was approved by the Board on April 2, 1997 (Board Order 874, 62 FR 17850, 4/10/97). The zone currently consists of 79 acres within the Yuma International Airport Complex, owned by Yuma County and leased to the Yuma County Airport Authority, Inc.

In accordance with the Board's regulations, a member of the FTZ Staff has been designated examiner to investigate the application and report to the Board.
