Whereas, the Greater Mississippi Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 158, submitted an application to the Board for authority to expand FTZ 158-Site 8 to include additional acreage in Senatobia, Mississippi, adjacent to the Memphis Customs and Border Protection port of entry (Docket 70-2010, filed December 14, 2010);

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 the proposal would be in the public interest if subject to specific conditions;
