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 Board adopted the alternative site framework (ASF) (15 CFR 400.2(c)) as an option for the establishment or reorganization of zones;

Whereas, the Cedar Rapids Airport Commission, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 175, submitted an application to the Board (FTZ Docket B-20-2014, docketed 3-6-2014) for authority to reorganize under the ASF with a service area of Appanoose, Benton, Blackhawk, Buchanan, Cedar, Clinton, Davis, Delaware, Des Moines, Dubuque, Grundy, Henry, Iowa, Jackson, Jefferson, Johnson, Jones, Keokuk, Lee, Linn, Louisa, Mahaska, Monroe, Muscatine, Poweshiek, Scott, Tama, Van Buren, Wapello, and Washington Counties, Iowa, adjacent to the Quad-Cities and Des Moines Customs and Border Protection ports of entry, FTZ 175's existing Site 1 would be categorized as a magnet site, and existing Site 2 would be removed from the zone;

Whereas, notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (79 FR 13612, 3-11-2014) and the application has been processed pursuant to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations; and,
