In keeping with our commitment to informing you about the Fiscal Year 2020 Commerce, Science, Justice (CJS) Appropriations bill, which funds the Census Bureau, we wanted to pass along an announcement. On September 24, 9:00 a.m., the Senate CJS subcommittee will be considering (or marking up) its version of the FY 2020 CJS bill. The full Senate Appropriations Committee is expected to consider the bill on Thursday, September 26. It is not clear if and when the bill will be considered on the floor of the United States Senate.
As a reminder, on July 24, the Census Project sent leaders of the Senate Appropriations Committee a letter, signed by almost 200 organizations, urging support for funding the Census Bureau and 2020 Census. The letter is posted on the Census Project home page and may be shared broadly.
