The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a– 81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on December 28, 2006. Subzone 133D (2.2 million square feet, 1,300 employees) was approved by the Board in 2001 at one site located at Highway 61 and Mt. Joy Road in Davenport (Board Order 1180, 66 FR 40673, 8/3/01). Deere’s original manufacturing authority was granted for the manufacture of construction equipment (four-wheel-drive loaders, motor graders and wheeled log skidders). Deere is now requesting authority to manufacture up to several hundred articulated dump trucks (also known as haulers) annually under zone procedures. The company indicates that the foreign inputs that may be admitted under FTZ procedures include transmissions, axles, gear boxes, cabs and engines. Duty rates on the proposed imported components currently range from 2.5 to 4.0 percent. This application requests authority for Deere to conduct the activity under FTZ procedures, which would exempt Deere from Customs duty payments on the foreign components used in export production. Approximately 12 percent of production is exported. On domestic sales, the company could choose the lower duty rate that applies to the finished product (duty free) for the E:\FR\FM\11JAN1.SGM 11JAN1
