[Order No. 2122]


Reorganization of Foreign-Trade Zone 145 Under Alternative Site 
Framework, Shreveport, Louisiana

    Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of 
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Board (the Board) adopts the following Order:

    Whereas, the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Act provides for ``. . . the 
establishment . . . of foreign-trade zones in ports of entry of the 
United States, to expedite and encourage foreign commerce, and for 
other purposes,'' and authorizes the Board to grant to qualified 
corporations the privilege of establishing foreign-trade zones in or 
adjacent to U.S. Customs and Border Protection ports of entry;
    Whereas, the Board adopted the alternative site framework (ASF) (15 
CFR Sec. 400.2(c)) as an option for the establishment or reorganization 
of zones;
    Whereas, the Caddo-Bossier Parishes Port Commission, grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone 145, submitted an application to the Board (FTZ 
Docket B-48-2021, docketed June 22, 2021) for authority to reorganize 
under the ASF with a service area of Caddo and Bossier Parishes, 
Louisiana, in and adjacent to the Shreveport Customs and Border 
Protection port of entry, and FTZ 145's existing Sites 1 and 2 would be 
categorized as magnet sites;
    Whereas, notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal 
Register (86 FR 33979-33980, June 28, 2021) and the application has 
been processed pursuant to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations; 
and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the 
examiners' report, and finds that the requirements of the FTZ Act and 
the Board's regulations are satisfied;
    Now, therefore, the Board hereby orders:
    The application to reorganize FTZ 145 under the ASF is approved, 
subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Section 
400.13, to the Board's standard 2,000-acre activation limit for the 
zone, and to an ASF sunset provision for magnet sites that would 
terminate authority for Site 1 if not activated within five years from 
the month of approval.

    Dated: December 13, 2021.
