Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Dialogue with journalists outside the Senate chamber on continuation of the resolution to reopen the government Friday, January 25, 2019.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that the Senate will vote on the Green New Deal presented last week by Senator Edward Markey, D-Mass. and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y.
Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, who is widely expected to participate in the 2020 race, has refused to say whether he supports the proposal.
"I will not take a position on every bill that will come out," he said Tuesday, according to Politico. "I support a green New Deal, I think we have to aggressively support climate change [legislation] .This is my answer".
Republicans control the Senate, with 53 members of the 100-person chamber. Democrats control the House of Representatives, but it is unclear whether the Assembly will vote on the measure under the leadership of Pelosi.
"It will be one of the many or perhaps many suggestions we will receive," Pelosi told Politico in a week interview. "The green dream or how they call it, nobody knows what it is, but is it right?"
President Donald Trump, meanwhile, used the Green New Deal as a new line of attack against the Democrats in his first major rally of the election season 2020.
