WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) released the following statement urging Nevadans to participate in the upcoming 2020 Census:
“With five months until the 2020 Census, it is vital that Nevadans participate,” said Senator Rosen. “An accurate census is critical to ensuring that all communities across Nevada and our country are counted. This important process will impact funding for our schools, roads, and hospitals. It is pivotal that Nevadans take part.”
