Donald Evans on Technology
Former Secretary of Commerce (Pres. Bush Cabinet)
Evansís decision, which triggered strong criticism from Democrats, revoked a Clinton administration policy that put the politically charged decision in the hands of the census director. At issue is whether redistricting should be based on raw numbers from the census or figures that have been adjusted to compensate for people who were missed-disproportionately minorities, immigrants and the poor. Evans said he would seek advice from career Census Bureau officials and others, but he is widely expected to decide against adjustment.
With states due to receive redistricting data next month, the decision must be made soon. Because control of the US House hinges on only a few seats, the political stakes are high.
