Following is an excerpt:

“This is a war between two administrations' views,” Epstein Becker Green member Stuart M. Gerson said. “The reason that ... there's so much of it happening now is to get as much of this on the record as they can, in the hopes that as little of it as possible will be overridden or repealed in the new administration.” …

“These are policies and judgments that the Democratic administration, the Democratic leadership of these agencies, wants to enact. They believe it's the right thing to do,” Gerson said. “But they are equally conscious of the fact that if the field were clear, that their successors would act in a different way.”
