Economic census could get reprieve

Economic census could get reprieve, by LIZ ENOCHS, Housing Wire (September 17, 2011).

The 2012 economic census, which was at risk of being eliminated after the House of Representatives sliced the Census Bureau’s funding 25% two months ago, could be retained after the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations voted for a smaller funding cut and specifically voiced its support for the report….

It’s still unclear whether the Senate’s smaller budget cut will leave the bureau enough financial wiggle room to continue producing the report, which costs $124 million, according to figures from NABE.
