Steyer says proposed Green New Deal is a ‘first draft’

Democratic mega-donor Tom Steyer praised Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) proposed Green New Deal in an interview that aired Wednesday on Hill.TV, but said many changes would likely be made to the proposal.

“I think she’s done us a signal service by coming up with a plan that is larger enough to fit the problem that it’s meant to solve,” Steyer told Hill.TV’s Krystal Ball on “Rising.”

“I think she and [Sen.] Ed Markey [D-Mass.] would agree it’s a first draft,” he continued. “They’re putting something forward, and of course there are going to be many iterations,” he said.
