AOC, Sanders unveil Green New Deal for public housing

Sanders said the legislation would "make public housing in America for two million people more energy efficient, safer and more comfortable." AOC said it would "decarbonize the entire public housing stock" in the U.S. The legislation presented by the two Democrats would reduce carbon emissions equivalent to taking one million cars off the roads.
