Gov. Bill Lee is encouraging all Tennesseans to participate in the U.S. Census. His new public service announcement was shown Wednesday during the public opening of the Census' office in Memphis.
Lee's message stresses that a proper count is necessary for governments and local communities to bring in much-needed taxpayer dollars. The U.S. Census is taken every 10 years to distribute representation in Congress and federal money.
Tennessee households will receive a letter inviting them to participate in the Census in March 2020.
