Cuomo Taps Miranda, Liu And MLK III To Chair Census Council
(AP) -- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says a new Census Council will oversee outreach and other efforts to make sure the upcoming Census counts as many New Yorkers as possible.
The Democrat announced Monday that Lin-Manuel Miranda, Lucy Liu and Martin Luther King III have been tapped to co-chair the new council.
He says the council will hold conferences and work in hard-to-reach communities to make sure they're counted.
Cuomo says he also plans to propose another $10 million for the state's Census efforts in this year's budget, which if approved would bring state funding efforts up to $70 million.
