Download as PDF 69048 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 217 / Wednesday, November 10, 2010 / Notices emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES I. Abstract II. Method of Collection The U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) fosters, serves, and promotes the Nation’s economic development. Through participation with other U.S. Government agencies, DOC creates national policies to enhance opportunities for U.S. workers and employers in the global economy. Countries that support the free flow of products, services, capital, and people create a positive business environment for their domestic firms. DOC has been informed by industry associations representing U.S. business and trade interests that their member companies have experienced problems with the visa process as it pertains to bringing foreign business travelers into the country. Although official data does not exist, anecdotal evidence suggests common difficulties for U.S. industry due to visa delays and denials, with commensurate economic loss to U.S. firms. Recognizing that national security concerns must always remain paramount in any discussion relating to business visas and in response to these industry concerns, the Secretary of Commerce has identified the need to measure how current U.S. business visa policy affects American companies active in the global economy. The facilitation of business travel is a priority of Secretary’s and very important to meeting President Obama’s National Export Initiative goal of doubling U.S. exports in the next five years. The DOC will request that U.S. industry and trade associations use the questionnaire to report instances of U.S. business visa delay or denial. The information derived from completed questionnaires is critical to enabling DOC to ascertain the economic impact, if any, of current U.S. business-related visa policy. DOC staff regularly receive unsolicited feedback from U.S industry, U.S. trade associations, state/regional/ local economic development officials, and foreign investors about challenges that foreign business travelers have encountered while trying to obtain a U.S. business visa. Though this qualitative information is useful in understanding certain issues pertaining to current U.S. business visa policy, the quantitative information that the questionnaire will gather is much more important in providing a more comprehensive understanding of the potential economic impact of business visa delays and denials. Information will be collected electronically. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:25 Nov 09, 2010 Jkt 223001 III. Data OMB Control Number: 0625–XXXX. Form Number(s): None.

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 November 4, 2010. FTZ 64 was approved by the Board on December 29, 1980 (Board Order 170, 46 FR 1330, 1/6/1981) and expanded on October 7, 2008 (Board Order 1579, 73 FR 61781, 10/17/2008). The current zone project includes the following ‘‘sites’’ in Jacksonville, Florida: Site 1 (67 acres)—Jacksonville International Airport, Pecan Park Road and Terrell Road; Site 2 (43 acres)— Halmark Properties, Inc., 2201 North Ellis Road; Site 3 (942 acres)—JPA Blount Island Terminal Complex, 9620 Dave Rawls Boulevard, and JPA Talleyrand Docks and Terminal Facility, 2085 Talleyrand Avenue; Site 4 (200 acres)—International Trade port Complex, Airport Road; Site 5 (4 acres)—Caribbean Cold Storage, Inc., 1505 Dennis Street; Site 7 (47 acres)— Westlake Industrial Park, 9767 Pritchard Road; and Site 8 (75 acres)—Imeson International Industrial Park, One Imeson Park Boulevard. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be the Florida counties of Baker, Clay, Columbia, Duval and Nassau, 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 Jacksonville Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize and expand its existing zone project to include existing Sites 1 and 3 as ‘‘magnet’’ sites, to include existing Sites 4, 7, and 8 as ‘‘usagedriven’’ sites, to remove existing Sites 2 and 5, and to include the following new site as a magnet site: Proposed Site 10 (4,474.0 acres)—AllianceFlorida at Cecil Commerce Center, I–10 and Cecil Commerce Center Parkway, Jacksonville. Further, existing Site 3 will have its non-contiguous parcel renumbered, with the Talleyrand Docks and Terminal Facility (2085 Talleyrand Avenue, Jacksonville) to be designated E:\FR\FM\10NON1.SGM 10NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 217 / Wednesday, November 10, 2010 / Notices as Site 9 (magnet site). 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 3 (JPA Blount Island Terminal Complex) be so exempted. Because the ASF only pertains to establishing or reorganizing a general-purpose zone, the application would have no impact on FTZ 64’s authorized subzone.

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 November 4, 2010.
    FTZ 64 was approved by the Board on December 29, 1980 (Board Order

Boulevard.
    The grantee's proposed service area under the ASF would be the 
Florida counties of Baker, Clay, Columbia, Duval and Nassau, 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 applicant is requesting authority to reorganize and expand its

to remove existing Sites 2 and 5, and to include the following new site
