    You Won’t Believe What House Republicans Just Did to the Census!

    The Republican-controlled House narrowly passed a measure to add a citizenship question to the U.S. Census, which is taken every 10 years to measure the population and apportion congressional districts.

    The Equal Representation Act cleared the chamber in a party-line 206–202 vote. In a 2019 ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the citizenship question, The Hill reported.

    “The measure would direct the Census Bureau to add a question to the 10-year survey asking for the respondent’s citizenship status and require that the U.S. only consider citizens when determining the number of congressional seats each state receives,” the outlet reported.

    Republicans could reduce the impact of high-population, liberal-leaning states like California by targeting apportionment.
