the County of Mercer, adjacent to the Philadelphia Customs and Border

alternative site framework 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 a three-year ASF 
sunset provision for usage-driven sites that would terminate authority 
for Sites 4 and 8 if no foreign status merchandise is admitted for a 
bona fide customs purpose by March 31, 2016.
