A group tasked with getting Pennsylvanians counted in the 2020 census is asking for state funds to make it happen.
The Complete Count Commission, which Governor Tom Wolf formed late last year, began behind-the-scenes negotiations in earnest last month. Now the group has settled on what it sees as a moderate ask: one dollar per person, or about $12.8 million.
“We need to act together,” said Keystone Counts head Erin Casey. “This isn’t a Republican or Democratic issue. This is about all of Pennsylvania.”
