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 11, 2010. FTZ 14 was approved by the Board on October 4, 1972 (Board Order 90, 37 FR 24853, 11/22/72), relocated on March 23, 1979 (Board Order 143, 43 FR 19502, 4/3/79), and expanded on February 3, 1999 (Board Order 1022, 64 FR 7853– 7854, 2/17/99). The current zone project includes the following sites: Site 1 (759.48 acres)— located at the Little Rock Port Industrial Park; Site 2 (969.394 acres)—industrial area located adjacent to Site 1 at the southeast corner of the Little Rock Port Industrial Park, on the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, Little Rock; and, Site 3 (191.54 acres)— located at the Little Rock National Airport, Adams Field, Little Rock. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be Clark, Conway, Dallas, Faulkner, Garland, Grant, Hot Spring, Jefferson, Lonoke, Montgomery, Nevada, Pike, Pulaski, Pope, Saline, Yell and White Counties, Arkansas. 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 Little Rock Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone project to include all of the existing sites as ‘‘magnet’’ sites and expand Site 1 to E:\FR\FM\19MYN1.SGM 19MYN1
