Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) adopts the following Order:

Whereas, the Tri-Cities Airport Commission, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 204, submitted an application to the Board for authority to expand FTZ 204 to include a site in Bristol, Tennessee, adjacent to the Tri-Cities Customs and Border Protection port of entry (FTZ Docket 13-2010, filed February 24, 2010);

Whereas, notice inviting public comment has been given in the Federal Register (75 FR 12731, 3/17/2010) and the application has been processed pursuant to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations; and,

Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the examiner's report, and finds that the requirements of the FTZ Act and Board's regulations are satisfied, and that the proposal is in the public interest;

Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders:

The application to expand FTZ 204 is approved, subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Section 400.28, and to the Board's standard 2,000-acre activation limit for the overall general-purpose zone project, and further subject to a sunset provision that would terminate authority on June 30, 2015 for Sites 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, and 9; and June 30, 2017 for Site 11 where no activity has occurred under FTZ procedures before that date.
