Davis Statement on Revised Illinois Census Numbers
Yesterday, the U.S. Census Bureau announced that its 2020 decennial census conducted in the State of Illinois undercounted Illinois’ population by nearly 2 percent. U.S. Representative Rodney Davis (R-IL) issued the following statement in response:
“Given these updated Census numbers, I will continue to advocate in Congress that Illinois gets its fair share of federal resources. For years, I have worked to fix unfair formulas for federal programs, including those for Medicaid and transportation, which have limited the amount of federal dollars the State of Illinois should otherwise receive.
“At the same time, Governor Pritzker and the Democrats who run state government should not use this news as a license to continue their tax hikes, corruption, and pro-criminal policies. Pritzker’s Far-Left agenda is limiting Illinois’ great potential.”
