Last Friday, Mayor Eric Adams signed an executive order to eliminate a requirement for people staying in the city's shelter system. Now, people can apply for housing vouchers without having to wait 90 days.
The rationale behind the decision is that it will help make room in shelters for arriving migrants.
This news comes after the City Council passed a similar package of bills last month. However, Adams is not on board with all of the proposals.
City Councilman Lincoln Restler, who represents parts of Brooklyn, wrote the mayor a letter on Monday to propose a possible solution: turning around vacant public housing units.
He joined Errol Louis on "Inside City Hall" Monday night to discuss the letter and more.
