Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

New Zone Approved in Kentucky. The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has approved a request from the Paducah McCracken County Riverport Authority to establish an FTZ under the alternative site framework with a service area encompassing portions of McCracken and Livingston counties in Kentucky. Specific production approvals are not being sought at this time. This is the third zone for the Evansville CBP port of entry, after FTZ 146 (Lawrence County, Ill.) and FTZ 177 (Evansville, Ind.).

Application for Expanded Service Area. The FTZ Board has received from the South Carolina State Ports Authority, grantee of FTZ 38, a request for authority to expand its service area under the alternative site framework. The zone currently has a service area that includes the counties of Greenville, Spartanburg, Cherokee, Oconee, Union, Anderson and Laurens, and the applicant is requesting authority to expand the service area to include Pickens, Greenwood and Abbeville counties. Comments on this request are due no later than Jan. 25.

Production Activity Review Terminated. The FTZ Board has terminated review of a notification of proposed production activity filed on behalf of American Tactical Imports within a now-expired site of FTZ 141 in Rochester, New York. The termination is the result of changed circumstances and the case has been closed without prejudice.
