Updates On Status of Census Bureau Funding from The Census Project

December 4, 2014 - Less than a minute read

The Census Project notes that the current Congress must act on appropriations for FY 2015, either through a measure incorporating all 12 appropriations bills or by passing a temporary funding measure for federal agencies. It is unclear what the Census Bureau’s funding level will be.  If the temporary funding measure is pursued, a funding “anomaly” will be sought for the 2020 Census planning so that testing and design can funded adequately.

Also, the Census Bureau published a Federal Register notice on December 2, outlining its plans for the National Content Test. It is here: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2014-12-02/pdf/2014-28247.pdf .
