07-31-18

(SACRAMENTO) - Lt. Governor Newsom issued the following statement on Secretary of State Padilla's unveiling of census2020.ca.gov which allows Californians to submit public comment on the 2020 Census, and encourages all Californians to voice their opinion on the Trump Administration's decision to include a citizenship question:

"It's simple. For the Census to fulfill its purpose, it needs to count every person. The Trump Administration's willingness to jeopardize the integrity of the Census threatens democratic representation and millions in health, education, and infrastructure investments that are vital to all Californians. I commend Secretary Padilla in fighting for our state and I urge everyone to take action by using this website."
