subzones or ``usage-driven'' FTZ sites for operators/users located 
within a grantee's ``service area'' in the context of the FTZ Board's 
standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a zone. The application was

currently has a service area that includes Cherokee, Lyon, O'Brien, 
Osceola, Plymouth and Sioux Counties, Iowa.
    The applicant is now requesting authority to expand the service 
area of the zone to include Woodbury County, Iowa, as described in the 
application. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites 
throughout the expanded service area based on companies' needs for FTZ 
designation. The proposed expanded service area is adjacent to the 
Sioux Falls Customs and Border Protection Port of Entry.
    In accordance with the FTZ 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
