[Docket 58-2011]


Foreign-Trade Zone 275--Lansing, MI; Application for 
Reorganization Under Alternative Site Framework

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) 
Board (the Board) by the Capital Region Airport Authority, grantee of 
FTZ 275, requesting authority to reorganize the zone under the 
alternative site framework (ASF) adopted by the Board (74 FR 1170, 1/
12/09 (correction 74 FR 3987, 1/22/09); 75 FR 71069-71070, 11/22/10). 
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 
September 27, 2011.
    FTZ 275 was approved by the Board on August 12, 2009 (Board Order 
1633, 74 FR 44822, 8/31/2011).
    The current zone project includes the following site: Site 1 (846 
acres)--Capital Region International Airport, 4100 Capital City 
Boulevard, Lansing (Ingham County).
    The grantee's proposed service area under the ASF would be Clinton, 
Eaton, Gratiot, Ingham, Isabella (portions), Jackson, Livingston and 
Shiawassee Counties, Michigan, 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 adjacent to the user fee airport designated by 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the Capital Regional 
International Airport, Lansing.
    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing 
zone project to include the existing site as a ``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 1 be so exempted. No usage-driven 
sites are being requested at this time. Because the ASF only pertains 
to establishing or reorganizing a general-purpose zone, the application 
would have no impact on FTZ 275's authorized subzone.
    In accordance with the Board's regulations, Elizabeth Whiteman 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 2, 2011. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted 
during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-
day period to December 19, 2011.
    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 http://www.trade.gov/ftz. For 
further information, contact Elizabeth Whiteman at
