SPRINGFIELD—State Senator Elgie R. Sims Jr. (D-Chicago) released the following statement after the governor signed an executive order for a comprehensive 2020 Census effort in Illinois:

“It is vital that all communities are accounted for in the next census. Minority communities historically have been underrepresented.

“I commend the governor for taking this crucial step to ensure that census data is as accurate as possible to provide the necessary resources for every community.

“As state leaders, we must do all we can to ensure that all of our communities are equally represented. This executive order will help guarantee that government funding helps all communities by making sure every single Illinoisan is accounted for in the upcoming census.”
