MBPC Director to Serve on Montana Census Committee

September 4, 2009

In 2010, the U.S. Census Bureau will complete the next count of national, state, and local populations. Hundreds of billions of federal dollars are appropriated to state and local governments based on the population numbers collected, making a complete and accurate count of Montanans critical to our state and local budgets and the programs, services, and infrastructure that federal funding supports. MBPC Director, Tara Veazey, has been asked to join Lieutenant Governor, John Bollinger, as a member of the “Census 2010 Statewide Complete Count Committee” and work with other members across the state to ensure an accurate count in Montana.
