From Facing South:
BUSH ADMINISTRATION OKS DEMOLITION OF NEW ORLEANS PUBLIC HOUSING COMPLEXES:
Despite a severe shortage of affordable housing along the Gulf Coast, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has approved a plan to tear down four public housing complexes in New Orleans and replace them with mixed-income developments with less space for the poor.
U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) says HUD is pushing forward with the tear-downs at the same time Congress is considering legislation that would require replacement housing.
