NH&RA Endorses 2020 Census Deadline Extensions Act

NH&RA has joined more than 200 organizations in endorsing legislation introduced by Senators Brian Schatz (D-HI), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Dan Sullivan (R-AK), which would extend two key statutory deadlines for the 2020 Census by four months and require the Census Bureau to continue field operations through October 31, 2020.

The 2020 Census Deadline Extensions Act would extend the deadline for the delivery of apportionment data to the U.S. House of Representatives to April 30, 2021 from December 31, 2020. It would also extend the statutory delivery of redistricting data to the states to July 31, 2021 from March 31, 2021.
