Billings v. Camp

Citation: 2 ELR 20687
No. No. 1366-72, 4 ERC 1744/(D.D.C., 10/04/1972)

Approval of an application for a branch bank in Woodstock Village, Vermont by the Comptroller of the Currency is found to be invalid on three grounds. One ground is failure to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act, in that the bank would generate additional traffic and thus significantly affect the human environment. The approval is held a major federal action, and an environmental impact statement must be filed.
