Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[Order No. 876]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status, Ascent Power Technology 
Corp., (Electric Power Supplies/Electronic Fluorescent Lighting 
Ballasts); Campton, KY

    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, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act ``To 
provide 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,'' as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) (the FTZ Act), 
the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) is authorized to grant to 
qualified corporations the privilege of establishing foreign-trade 
zones in or adjacent to U.S. Customs ports of entry;
     Whereas, the Board's regulations (15 CFR Part 400) provide for the 
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities 
cannot serve the specific use involved;
     Whereas, an application from the Louisville and Jefferson County 
Riverport Authority, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 29, for authority to 
establish special-purpose subzone status for the manufacturing 
facilities (electric power supplies and electronic fluorescent lighting 
ballasts) of Ascent Power Technology Corp., in Campton, Kentucky, was 
filed by the Board on August 27, 1996, and notice inviting public 
comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 67-96, 61 FR 
47870, 9-11-96); and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the 
examiner's report, and finds that the requirements of the FTZ Act and

[[Page 17147]]

Board's regulations are satisfied, and that approval of the application 
is in the public interest;
    Now, therefore, the Board hereby grants authority for subzone 
status at the Ascent Power Technology Corp., facilities in Campton, 
Kentucky (Subzone 29G), at the locations described in the application, 
subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including 
Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 25th day of March 1997.
Robert S. LaRussa,
Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, 
Alternate Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
Executive Secretary.
