On December 7, 1992, in his first post-election stand on an environmental issue, Vice President Elect Al Gore called for a halt to the WTI incinerator.
The statement subtitled, 'Clinton-Gore Administration Would Not Issue Test Burn Permit,' also called for a Government Accounting Office investigation into the controversial WTI incinerator.
Gore said that when he and President-elect Bill Clinton take office, their Administration will not issue the permit needed to allow test burns of the incinerator.
