Attorney General Josh Stein on the U.S. Supreme Court’s Census Decision

Release date: 6/27/2019

(RALEIGH) Attorney General Josh Stein today released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on the census case.

“The census should not be political, and the Supreme Court made the right choice in this case. North Carolinians deserve their fair share of representation in Congress and of federal dollars whether for roads, schools, or healthcare.”

In April, Attorney General Josh Stein joined a coalition of 18 states, 16 local governments, and the U.S. Conference of Mayors in filing a merits brief in the United States Supreme Court in the case challenging the Trump administration’s attempt to add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census. The Supreme Court agreed with Attorney General Stein and his colleagues.
