Sanders, AOC to introduce $100B plan that makes public housing more energy-efficient

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Bernie Sanders plan to introduce legislation on Thursday that makes public housing more energy-efficient, at a cost of over $100 billion.

The plan, dubbed the Green New Deal for Public Housing Act, will call for renovation of public housing units to install community gardens and organic grocery stores along with on-site childcare services, according to the Washington Post. Data for Progress, a progressive think tank, has estimated the cost of the program at between $119-$172 billion over the next decade.
