Entities that have received waiver authority from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to use the 763–768/793–798 MHz (700 MHz) public safety broadband spectrum by the date of this Notice are invited to file a BTOP application and request BTOP funding.

Reopening the Application Window On May 11, 2010, the FCC adopted an order authorizing the early deployment of public safety broadband networks in the 700 MHz public safety broadband spectrum for a number of entities that had petitioned for waiver authority for such relief.5 To further the objectives of the Recovery Act and to help ensure that the core statutory purposes of BTOP are achieved, NTIA finds that, given these extraordinary circumstances, a limited reopening of the CCI application filing window is in the best interest of the federal government.6 Accordingly, NTIA reopens the CCI application filing window to those entities that meet the eligibility criteria in the Second NOFA and that have received authority from the FCC by the date of this Notice to seek to use the 700 MHz public safety broadband spectrum to deploy a public safety broadband system.7 NTIA is limiting eligibility under this Notice to this group of entities to help ensure that all BTOP grant funds can be obligated by the statutory deadline of September 30, 2010; 8 to provide the public safety community with the opportunity to obtain funding for an initial set of networks to support current NTIA efforts to test new standards and technologies that eventually will support a nationwide interoperable public safety broadband network; and to provide an opportunity to submit an application to entities that may have been discouraged from applying for BTOP funding because they did not have the legal authority to use the 700 MHz spectrum. Entities that received a FCC waiver and that already have applied for the second round of BTOP funding are not required to reapply during this new window.

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) 
Board (the Board) by the Illinois International Port District, grantee

the alternative site framework (ASF) adopted by the Board (74 FR 1170, 
1/12/09; correction 74 FR 3987, 1/22/09). 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 May 7, 2010.
    FTZ 22 was approved by the Board on October 29, 1975 (Board Order 
108, 40 FR 51242; November 4, 1975) and expanded on April 9, 1987 
(Board Order 353, 52 FR 12217; April 15, 1987); on December 11, 1992 
(Board Order 614, 57 FR 61044; December 23, 1992); on November 21, 2000 
(Board Order 1127, 65 FR 76218; December 6, 2000); on December 19, 2003 
(Board Order 1313, 69 FR 49; January 2, 2004); on May 9, 2005 (Board 
Order 1390, 70 FR 29277; May 20, 2005); and, on August 21, 2006 (Board 
Order 1474, 71 FR 51184; August 29, 2006). The general-purpose zone 
includes the following sites: Site 1 (51 acres)--Lake Calumet Harbor 
Terminal Facility, 12200/12255 South Stony Island Avenue, Chicago (Cook 
County); Site 2 (578 acres)--Illinois Diversatech Campus Corporation, 
One Diversatech Drive, Manteno (Kankakee County); Site 3 (8 acres)--
Gotoh Distribution Services, Inc., 703 Foster Avenue, Bensenville (Du 
Page County); Site 4 (8 acres)--Meiko America, Inc., Gerry Drive and 
Hanson Court, Wood Dale (Du Page County); Site 5 (1,468 acres)--
CenterPoint Intermodal Center, 20901 West Walter Strawn Drive, Elwood 
(Will County); Site 6 (317 acres)--Rock Run Business Park, Houlbolt 
Road and Interstate 80, Joliet (Will County); Site 7 (21 acres) O'Hare

County); Site 8 (102 acres) ProLogis Park 80, Rt. 47 & ProLogis 
Parkway, Morris (Grundy County); Site 9 (12 acres) Centex Industrial 
Park, 1717 Busse Road, Elk Grove Village (Cook County); Site 10 (43 
acres) Bolingbrook Distribution Center, 1701 Remington Boulevard, 
Bolingbrook (Will County); Site 11 (137 acres) Heartland Corporate 
Center, 21228 SW Frontage Road, Shorewood (Will County); Site 12 (17 
acres) LG Electronics, 1251 115th Street, Bolingbrook (Will County); 
Site 13 (4.6 acres) Henry Bath Iroquois Landing, 9301 South Kreiter 
Avenue, Chicago (Cook County); Site 14 (9 acres) Exel, Inc., 3702-3710 
River Road, Franklin Park (Cook County); Site 15 (7.5 acres) Henry 
Bath, 1550 East 98th Place, Chicago (Cook County); Site 16 (32 acres) 
BMW, 456 Internationale Parkway South, Minooka (Grundy County); Site 17 
(10 acres) Noramco-Chicago, Inc., 12228 New Avenue, Lemont (Cook 
County); and, Site 18 (0.5 acres) Nagata Technology, Inc., 400 Lively 
Boulevard, Elk Grove Village (Cook County). Sites 8-11 are subject to a 
sunset provision that would terminate authority on September 30, 2011, 
where no activity has occurred under FTZ procedures before that date, 
and Sites 15-18 are subject to a time limit of March 31, 2011.
    The grantee's proposed service area under the ASF would be Cook, Du 
Page, Grundy, Kankakee, Kendall, Lake and Will Counties and portions of 
McHenry and Kane Counties, as described in the application. 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 Chicago Customs and 
Border Protection port of entry.
    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing 
zone project as follows: Sites 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13 and 15 
would become ``magnet'' sites; and, Sites 3, 4, 9, 12, 14, 16, 17 and 
18 would become ``usage-driven'' sites. The ASF allows for the possible 
exemption of one magnet site from the ``sunset'' time limits that 
generally apply to sites under the ASF, and the applicant proposes that 
Site 1 be so exempted. The applicant is also requesting approval of an 
additional ``usage-driven'' site in Du Page County: Proposed Site 19 
(9.7 acres)--Eastman Kodak Company, 127 East Elk Trail Boulevard, Carol 
Stream. Since the ASF only pertains to establishing or reorganizing a 
general-purpose zone, the application would have no impact on FTZ 22's 
authorized subzones.
    In accordance with the Board's regulations, Claudia Hausler 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 
July 19, 2010. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted
