Spotlight with Laurie Hardie

Spotlighting the US Census

This week we hear from Toby Nelson the Media Liaison for the U.S. Census Bureau covering Washington State. As you may know, the Census determines how 650 billion dollars per year in funding is allocated and determines how many congressional seats each state receives for the next decade. They are hiring for the census taking, and they are sending out postcards giving people the option to send in their answers or go online to avoid someone knocking on their door.
