Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), the chair of the Senate Democratic Policy and Communications Committee, told Axios' Mike Allen at an Axios News Shapers event on Thursday that she wishes Democrats' Green New Deal resolution had "a little more input" prior to its unveiling last week.

Why it matters: Stabenow dodged a question about whether she will vote for the resolution as it is framed now, saying, "I support the goals as it relates to climate change," but adding that "some of the wording is of concern ... because it leaves things wide open and allows folks that are opposing it to … mischaracterize it."
