Whereas, the Greater Baton Rouge Port Commission, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 154, submitted an application to the Board for authority to expand FTZ 154 to include a site (120 acres) within the 155-acre St. Martin Parish Industrial Park located near St. Martinville, Louisiana (Site 5), adjacent to the Baton Rouge Customs port of entry (FTZ Docket 29-2004; filed 7/28/04); Whereas, notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (69 FR 47865, 8/6/04) and the application has been processed pursuant to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations; and,
