Elizabeth Gore commented the EPA's move to deny requests to review the Clean Power Plan.
"Now that EPA is changing hands, there is a legitimate concern by the current EPA leadership that the petitions would be granted by the Trump administration so the Obama administration is acting now," Gore told SNL in an interview. "There is nothing nefarious about this. The EPA and other agencies are working to protect the current administration's policies and are using all of their legal and administrative tools to accomplish that. Similarly, the incoming administration will use whatever levers it has to undo the Clean Power Plan or other policies that it opposes."
