Comments needed on Census Commission proposal

Longtime public servant Merrit Drucker has recently taken on the Census in DC.   Meaning, he is working with others to encourage the DC government to create in legislation a permanent Census Commission.   As drafted, the Census Commission would:
  1. Ensure a complete count in the decennial Federal Census.
  2. Ensure the accuracy and validity of the Census conducted in the District of Columbia.
  3. Ensure that the Mayor and the Council jointly form a Complete Count Committee three years before the decennial Federal Census.
  4. Ensure ongoing public education about the Census.
  5. Create a comprehensive history of the Census as implemented in the District of Columbia.

The complete draft is below.

If you have any thoughts on the draft, email them to Drucker.
