Citation: 2 ELR 20641
No. No. 1029-71, (D.D.C., 03/24/1972)

The Atomic Energy Commission does not have to file an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act concerning its research and development program on the liquid metal fast breeder reactor. Only when a demonstration plant is built must such an Impact Statement be filed, and alternatives may be considered then. (See ELR Dig. [182] for moving papers available in this suit).
