Senator Peters Urges Full Advance Funding for 2020 Census

Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI), ranking member on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, says that he is “acutely aware that the Census Bureau requires robust, on-time funding to complete critical operations for the 2020 Census.” Yesterday, he wrote to Senate Appropriations leadership, urging them to “support the 2020 Census by ensuring the Census Bureau receives full funding for Decennial Census operations, at $7.5 billion, before the beginning of the Fiscal Year on October 1, 2019.”

The Senator’s request is in line with the recent funding requests from Census Project stakeholders and business leaders. The need for an anomaly for the 2020 Census is evident.
