Texas AFL-CIO Statement on Supreme Court Census Decision

Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy issued this statement regarding today’s decision in United States Department of Commerce v. New York:

“Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has disposed of the Trump Administration’s attempt to politicize the Census, the Texas AFL-CIO strongly encourages every Texas working family to participate in the 2020 population count. Allocation of political power and funding needs to be based on all residents in our fast-growing state. Today’s Supreme Court decision is a step toward helping Texas working families obtain true representation – not suppression – at all levels of government.”
