Connolly Statement on Cancellation of Oversight Committee's Call with Census Bureau

Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Government Operations, released the following statement today in response to the abrupt cancellation of a scheduled call between the House Committee on Oversight and Reform and the Director of the Census Bureau, Steven Dillingham:

"A long planned conference call with the Director of the Census Bureau and the Oversight Committee, scheduled for 2:00 PM today, was just abruptly cancelled with no explanation from the Census Bureau or White House. With only 48% of the nation completing Census forms, and a pandemic raging in communities, the Census Bureau has nothing to say. No accountability. No transparency. A shameful chapter added to a shameful lack of responsibility by the Trump administration."
