Cohen v. Price Comm'n

Citation: 2 ELR 20178
No. No. 72 Civ. 53, 337 F. Supp. 1236/3 ERC 1548/(S.D.N.Y., 01/24/1972)

Motion for preliminary injunction of the Price Commission's approval of a New York City bus and subway fare increase for noncompliance with NEPA is dismissed because it is unlikely that Congress intended NEPA's requirements to apply to the Price Commission, a temporary agency established by Congress to deal expeditiously with short-term economic problems. Also plaintiffs have not convincingly demonstrated that the challenged administrative action will result in increased air pollution.
