As the co-chair of the House Census Caucus and author of the Census IDEA Act, Congresswoman Maloney is leading the charge to ensure a fair and accurate 2020 Census. The importance of accurate data cannot be minimized. Decennial census data is used to ensure fair representation and the fair distribution of federal funds.
Here are some of the actions Congresswoman Maloney has taken to protect the 2020 Census:
- Helped secure an additional $1 billion for Census outreach.
- Authored the 2020 Census IDEA Act (HR 732) to block citizenship question.
- Led Amicus Brief signed by over 120 members of Congress in support of the New York Attorney General’s lawsuit to block the citizenship question.
