HUD’s privatization scheme may herald end of public housing

HUD At a time when a shortage of affordable housing is devastating low-income families, U.S. policymakers appear to have all but given up on the idea of a state-managed public housing system.

Michael Toscano, president of a drone industry trade group, said FAA officials also have verified the increase to him.
