Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Tuesday her massive Green New Deal proposal will move forward — in pieces.
“One of the things I think is really exciting," said the first-term New York Democrat, is that "the legislation that we are planning on introducing is not one broad sweeping piece of legislation.”
Ocasio-Cortez said, “We are breaking it up into parts.”
The liberal Democrat said lawmakers are at work on different pieces of legislation derived from the Green New Deal, which calls for eliminating carbon emissions in the United States in 10 years.
One of the first measures will promote the transition to electric vehicles, she said.
