As part of its Census-related activity, the NCL has recently become a partner with Census Counts, a collaborative effort that is part of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. The partnership includes access to many useful resources and news updates, as well as participation in the Census Task Force. Here are two news updates of interest:
1. The Supreme Court will likely take up the citizenship question on Friday of this week. See this blog post for more.
2. Several bills on the Census have been introduced in the 116th Congress. Two that merit special attention are HR 732, the Census IDEA Act (introduced by Representative Maloney, 57 cosponsors) and S 358, the Census IDEA Act (introduced by Senator Schatz, 18 cosponsors). For a full list of all the bills that have been introduced and links to the bill texts, see the current issue of Democracy Download, the newsletter of Common Cause.
