TO DECLARE APRIL 1-7, 2000, AS "CENSUS WEEK", AND APRIL 2, 2000, AS "CENSUS SUNDAY" IN SOUTH CAROLINA IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE CENSUS 2000 AS ACCURATE AS POSSIBLE FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE PALMETTO STATE.
Whereas, the organization "Plus Five and Because You Count" of the United States Census Bureau has invited everyone to participate in the "How America Knows What America Needs" campaign, which gives communities across the nation the opportunity to impact Census 2000 and, in doing so, to renew this country's sense of civic engagement; the initial and critical phase of the census is the delivery of census forms to millions of residences, asking that they be completed and mailed to the Census Bureau; and
Whereas, census data is the basis for the majority of federal grants and other revenues available to the Palmetto State over the next ten years; therefore, it is critical that South Carolina's census numbers properly reflect the citizenry of the State; and
Whereas, also, information from Census 2000 will form the basis for decisions on crucial issues such as reapportionment and redistricting for public offices, distribution of public funds for health care and education, and planning for both public and private entities, including counties, municipalities, and businesses; and
Whereas, all South Carolinians are urged to fill out their census forms and mail them back promptly so that this State can receive the greatest possible benefits and rewards. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, declares April 1-7, 2000, as "Census Week" and April 2, 2000, as "Census Sunday" in South Carolina in an effort to make Census 2000 as accurate as possible for the benefit of the Palmetto State.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Ms. Doris Green.
