Today, Gov. John Bel Edwards signed an executive order creating the Louisiana Complete Count Committee (LCCC) to help create the 2020 Census Awareness Campaigns throughout Louisiana. The advisory panel is made up of community, government and business leaders who represent the diverse populations of communities across the state.
“It is vital that every Louisianan participate in the 2020 census, which provides us an opportunity once every 10 years to take a snapshot of our population in order to make the best decisions possible to better serve our citizens, determine congressional representation and that we are in the best possible shape to receive our share of federal resources as they are made available," said Gov. Edwards. “This is important work that this committee will undertake, and I am grateful to everyone who has made the commitment to participate. The impact of the census count will help shape the future of our state for the next decade and that is why we must do everything within our power to make certain all communities are represented and no one is left out of the process.”
