Co-Sign Bi-Partisan Letter to Census Bureau – Reaching Hard to Count Communities

Please join me in asking Dr. Steven Dillingham, the director of the Census Bureau, for updates on any steps that the Census Bureau has taken to ensure that computers in public spaces are able to access the 2020 Census form. Due to the nature of the 2020
Census form’s formatting, it may not be accessible by computers with hardware over a decade old. This is an issue especially affecting rural communities who rely heavily on resources in community spaces. The 2020 Census will be used to allocate over a trillion
dollars in federal funding that will impact the life of every American. As Members of Congress, we must ensure that all our constituents are counted in the 2020 Census.

Cosponsor the Promoting National Service and Reducing Unemployment Act

Please cosponsor the Promoting National Service and Reducing Unemployment Act (H.R. 5618) to address one of the greatest workforce tragedies resulting from today’s economy—our unemployed young people—to spur economic growth and to alleviate strain on state
and local governments.  This tragedy is not only harming our young people, but it is also costing our government billions of dollars each year in lost productivity, lost tax revenue and other costs.  Although total unemployment has reached a relative low (3.5
percent), the unemployment rate for young people is eight percent.  These young people have not had a fair chance to use the high school or college education we strongly urged them to obtain.

Please join me in asking Dr. Steven Dillingham, the director of the Census Bureau, for updates on any steps that the Census Bureau has taken to ensure that computers in public spaces are able to access the 2020 Census form. Per the Census Bureau’s Guidelines,
computers manufactured before 2008 may not be able to access the 2020 Census form. Several Congressional districts’ computers in public community spaces have been reported as not meeting the standard set by the Census Bureau. The 2020 Census will be used to
allocate over a trillion dollars in federal funding that will impact the life of every American. As Members of Congress, we must ensure that all our constituents are counted in the 2020 Census.

Cosponsor the MORE TOD Act

Ensuring local communities have all the tools they need to maximize their economic development efforts and maximize the return of our federal investments should be a top priority for Congress in the next surface transportation reauthorization. As families
increasingly demand neighborhoods where they can live, work and play, incentivizing Transit Oriented Development (TOD) in local and regional transit and land use plans will be critical to creating more walkable, vibrant, mixed-use communities that improve
mobility and quality of life;  reduce congestion, pollution and sprawl; increase transit ridership; and, enhance opportunities to promote sustainable economic growth.
