From our friends at The Census Project:
Below is a link to a sign-on letter outlining the effects of the so-called sequestration on the FY 2013 federal budget for Census 2020 planning. The Obama Administration has requested a small change in how the sequestration affects the Census Bureau budget, called an "anomaly." The effects of sequestration and the need for the anomaly are outlined in the letter.
We are asking for organizations to sign onto the letter by COB this Friday, March 8. If you can join in signing on, please contact Jason Shevrin (firstname.lastname@example.org) by COB Friday, March 8.
The sign-on letter can be viewed at http://thecensusproject.org/letters/Census_Project-FY13_CR_ltr_to_Congress-FINAL.pdf.
