This article focuses on the proposal of House Republicans to expand the budget of the Census Bureau for advertising and outreach programs during a period of six to eight months, starting in October 1999. The increase has been approved by the House Government Reform & Oversight Committee, and could come up for a full House vote as soon as mid-April when Congress returns from an Easter break. The proposal was offered by Representative Dan Miller, in part as a Republican alternative to making adjustments to Census data based on statistical projections of undercounts.
