Save the American Community Survey - ACS

Messages Sent So Far
On May 9th, the House voted to no longer fund the American Community Survey. The results of this survey are used to make informed decisions about policies that impact the future of the United States.

Rep. Norman Dicks (Washington), Member of the Appropriations Committee, commented that the ACS was first administered in 2005 under President Bush and includes questions that were part of the long form Census and have been asked since the time of Thomas Jefferson. Information from this study are used to establish policies about how to distribute over $800 million in federal funds, including Medicaid benefits.

Please vote to continue funding for the ACS so the goverment has the information it needs to make informed policy decisions about how to allocate monies and help America grow.
