The Sixth Circuit affirmed, finding that relief under NHPA was foreclosed by a provision in the Energy and Water Development Appropriation Bill, Public Law No. 96-69, which authorized the Tellico Dam. That law stated that TVA was authorized to complete the dam notwithstanding any other law. The court read this as a clear congressional command that the dam could not be enjoined because of noncompliance with NHPA. 620 F.2d at 1161.
