FTZ Board Reorganizes Houston Zone, Considers New Central Pa. Zone
The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has approved the reorganization of FTZ 84 in Houston, Texas, under the alternative site framework. This zone will now have a service area of Harris County, Texas, within and adjacent to the Houston U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry.
The FTZ Board has received from the Pennsylvania Foreign-Trade Zone Corporation an application to establish an FTZ in Central Pennsylvania, adjacent to the Pittsburgh and Harrisburg CBP ports of entry, under the alternative site framework. The service area of the new zone would be Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Centre, Fulton, Huntingdon and Somerset counties in Pennsylvania. The proposed zone would be the third for the Pittsburgh CBP port of entry (following FTZs 33 (Pittsburgh) and 254 (Jefferson County)) and the second for the Harrisburg CBP port of entry (following FTZ 147 (Berks County)). Comments on this request are due no later than April 14.
