The House Oversight Committee is considering whether to allow Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) to issue subpoenas to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and others over the 2020 census.
Cummings on Friday revealed the panel will vote next week on a resolution authorizing subpoenas over the proposed census citizenship question.
If passed, the Chairman could require Ross, Attorney General William Barr, and Deputy Attorney General John Gore to testify before congress.
The Commerce Department has additionally been given until Monday, April 1st to inform the panel, and Cummings, if Ross will comply with it’s request for un-redacted documents.
