Description

Counting of incarcerated persons by the United States Bureau of the Census for redistricting purposes. Expresses the sense of the General Assembly that the United States Bureau of the Census should provide redistricting data that counts incarcerated persons in a manner consistent with the principles of "one person, one vote." Such redistricting data should count incarcerated individuals at their addresses of residence, rather than the address of the prison, during the 2020 and all future decennial censuses.
