Senate Hearing on Commerce Department FY 2022 Budget Next Week

The Senate Commerce, Justice, Science (CJS) Appropriations Subcommittee will hold a hearing at 2pm on May 26, 2021 to discuss Fiscal Year 2022 funding for the Department of Commerce, which includes the Census Bureau. The hearing will come one day before the Biden Administration is expected to finally released their full FY 2022 budget proposal.

Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo will testify.

Last month, The Census Project sent a letter signed by over 50 national, state, and local organizations urging the House and Senate CJS Appropriations Subcommittees to provide the Census Bureau with $2 billion in FY 2022, in line with The Census Project’s budget recommendation from March.
