President-elect Donald Trump’s spokesman Jason Miller tells reporters that the policy team is looking at a number of different options on how to handle President Obama’s executive orders.

Miller was asked specifically about the current administration blocking states from not dispersing federal funds to Planned Parenthood in a new rule, which was finalized on Wednesday. “The policy team is reviewing a number of different options for day one executive order as well as additional executive orders during the first 100 days,” Miller told reporters.

“There’s not yet been a final list that’s put forward, but as most of you saw Stephen Miller, who is our national policy director, […] is working with a team to get those put together.”

Miller added there’s no announcement yet regarding the Planned Parenthood rule, but to stay tuned.

According to NBC News, the Obama administration finalized the new rule on Wednesday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The final rule prevents states from regulating federal funds for organizations that provide family planning services, such as Planned Parenthood.

NBC News notes that the rule does not specifically name Planned Parenthood, but it directly affects organizations that provide abortions.
