ABOUT THE CENSUS  

      As mandated by the U.S. Constitution, our nation gets just one chance each decade to count its population. The U.S. census counts every resident in the United States. It is mandated by Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution and takes place every 10 years. The data collected by the census determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives (a process called apportionment) and is also used to distribute billions in federal funds to local communities. The 2020 census requires counting an increasingly diverse and growing population of around 330 million people in more than 140 million housing units.



PUBLIC  PARTICIPATION  

      The legislature seeks active and informed public participation in all of its redistricting activities. The legislature intends to provide for the widest range of public information about its deliberations and full opportunity for citizens to make suggestions and recommendations to the legislature, all in accordance with the rules and policies of each house of the legislature and the provisions of law relative to open meetings and public records.
MEETING SCHEDULE
