Challenge #3: Citizenship Question and SCOTUS
Just one week after a federal judge in Washington ruled in favor of the U.S. Commerce Department by denying a request to block a citizenship question on the 2020 Census, the U.S. Supreme Court announced Friday, February 15 that they intend to hear arguments on the question.
Timeline. The justices are expected to hear the case on April 23, 2019, and release their decision by the end of June. This proposed timeline is being driven, in part, by a tight turnaround for printing the census forms. According to officials, the finalized form must be sent to the printers no later than June 2019.
