U.S. Senate to vote on Green New Deal this month -Republican leader McConnell

WASHINGTON, March 5 (Reuters) - Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday the U.S. Senate will vote on the Democratic environmental proposal the “Green New Deal” in the next two weeks.

“The Green New Deal continues to be an interesting discussion for particularly Republicans and we will of course give our Democratic friends who’ve been advocating this proposal an opportunity to debate it and vote on it on the Senate floor sometime in the next couple of weeks,” McConnell said.
