WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) released a statement following the news that a federal court ordered the U.S. Census Bureau to continue count operations until the end of October.
“Historically undercounted communities like those in South Texas need as much time and resources as they can to be counted. In a pandemic, we need even more. I am grateful that the federal court has ruled to order the U.S. Census Bureau to continue count operations until the end of October. This Census is vital to the future of the 15th District of Texas and the future funding that it will provide for programs in our schools, hospitals, libraries, and more.”
