FTZs Reorganized. The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has approved the reorganization under the alternative site framework of the following zones.

- FTZ 263, which will have a service area of Androscoggin, Cumberland and Sagadahoc counties in Maine, within and adjacent to the Portland U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry

- FTZ 71, which will have a service area of Hartford, Middlesex, Windham, Tolland and Litchfield counties in Connecticut, adjacent to the Hartford CBP port of entry

- FTZ 80, which will have a service area of Bexar County in its entirety and portions of Comal and Guadalupe counties in Texas, in and adjacent to the San Antonio CBP port of entry

New Zone Requested. The FTZ Board has received from the Paducah McCracken County Riverport Authority a request to establish an FTZ under the ASF with a service area encompassing portions of McCracken and Livingston counties in Kentucky. Specific production approvals are not being sought at this time. The proposed zone would be the third for the Evansville CBP port of entry, after FTZ 146 (Lawrence County, Ill.) and FTZ 177 (Evansville, Ind.). Comments on this request are due no later than June 15.
