The company also uses the facility to store, blend and distribute gasoline, diesel fuel, biodiesel, biofuels and certain fuel blendstocks, including ethanol. The company is not requesting to blend foreign status products in the proposed subzone. Some of the products are or will be sourced from abroad or from U.S. refineries under FTZ procedures. Duty rates range from duty-free to 52.5 cents/barrel to 7% ad valorem for fuel products, duty-free to 6.5% for biofuels, and 1.9%–2.5% + 14.27 cents/liter for ethanol. Zone procedures would exempt SFMC from customs duties and Federal excise taxes on foreign status jet fuel used for international flights, some 20– 35 percent of the terminal’s shipments. On domestic sales, the company would be able to defer duty payments on foreign status products until shipped from the facility and entered for consumption. The application indicates that the savings from FTZ procedures would help improve the facility’s international competitiveness. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Diane Finver of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is December 28, 2009. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to January 12, 2010. A copy of the application will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Room 2111, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230–0002, and in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the Board’s Web site, which is accessible via https:// www.trade.gov/ftz.

The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of general-purpose zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new ‘‘usage-driven’’ FTZ sites for operators/ users located within a grantee’s ‘‘service area’’ in the context of the Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a general-purpose zone project. The application was submitted pursuant to 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 October 22, 2009. FTZ 17 was approved by the Board on December 20, 1973 (Board Order 97, 39 FR 26, 1/2/74), and expanded in January 1989 (Board Order 428, 54 FR 5992, 2/ 7/89), in January 1993 (Board Order 631, 58 FR 6112, 1/26/93), and in October 1997 (Board Order 925, 62 FR 55574, 10/27/97). The current zone project includes the following sites: Site 1 (7.5 acres)—located at 6500 Inland Drive, Kansas City; Site 2 (5.1 acres)—located at 5203 Speaker Road, Kansas City; Site 3 (5 acres)—located at 30 Funston Road, Kansas City; Site 4 (50,000 sq. ft.)— located at 830 Kindleberger Road, Kansas City; Site 5 (21 acres, 2 parcels)—within the Leavenworth Area Business Center, located at 13th and Eisenhower Road, Leavenworth; Site 6 (966 acres)—Forbes Field Airport/ Topeka Air Industrial Park, 6700 South Topeka Boulevard, Topeka; Site 7 (106 acres)—The Phillip Billard Airport/ Industrial Park Complex, 3600 Sardue, Topeka; and, Site 8 (50 acres)—Coleman Corporation within the Midwest Commerce Center, 17150 Mercury Street, Gardner. (There is an application pending with the Board to expand Site 8 to include the entire 156-acre Midwest Commerce Center (Doc. 16–2009).) The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be Wyandotte, Johnson, Douglas, Shawnee, Leavenworth and Miami Counties, Kansas. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is within and adjacent to the Kansas City Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone project as follows: Sites 2, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 8 would become ‘‘magnet’’ sites; Site 4 would become a ‘‘usage-driven’’ site; and, Site 1 would be removed from the zone project due to changed circumstances.
