This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) (the Act), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) adopts the following Order:
Whereas, the Greater Mississippi Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of FTZ 158, has requested authority under Section 400.28 (a)(2) of the Board's regulations on behalf of Lane Furniture Industries, Inc. (Lane), to manufacture upholstered furniture and related parts under FTZ procedures within FTZ 158 Sites 14 (Belden, MS), 16 (Saltillo, MS), and 17 (Verona, MS) (FTZ Docket 28-2007, filed 7-26-2007);
Whereas, notice inviting public comment has been given in the Federal Register (72 FR 43233, 8-3-2007);
Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the examiner's report, and finds that the requirements of the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations would be satisfied, and that approval of the application would be in the public interest if approval were subject to certain restrictions;
Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants authority for the manufacture of upholstered furniture and related parts (upholstery seat covers) within FTZ 158 for Lane Furniture Industries, Inc., as described in the application and Federal Register notice, subject to the Act and the Board's regulations, including Section 400.28, and further subject to the following restrictions:
1)the manufacturing authority shall not commence earlier than January 2, 2009 and shall remain in effect for a period of five years from the later of January 2, 2009 or the date of approval;
2)the annual volume of the foreign micro-denier suede upholstery fabric finished with a caustic soda solution that Lane may admit to the zone under nonprivileged foreign status (19 CFR § 146.42) is limited to 6.5 million square yards;
3)Lane must admit all foreign-origin upholstery fabrics other than micro-denier suede upholstery fabric finished with a caustic soda solution to the zone under domestic (duty-paid) status (19 CFR § 146.43); and,
4)Lane shall submit supplemental annual report data for the purpose of monitoring by the FTZ Staff.
