Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez Unveil Green New Deal for Public Housing

Bernie Sanders Returns To The Campaign Trail With A Rally In New York City

Senator Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unveiled what is being called A New Green Deal, which will invest $172 billion over the next ten years to upgrade the U.S. 1.2 million public housing units.

The deal would seek to renovate the units by converting furnaces and stoves that use oil or gas to more energy-efficient electrical appliances and replaces lead pipes to clean up the unit's water supply.

While the plan could create around 241,000 new jobs according to Huff Post, but the bill will likely never become law as Republicans have spoken of cutting back on funding for the public sector.
