    Sec. 209. (a) Congress finds that--
        (1) it is the constitutional duty of the Congress to ensure 
    that the decennial enumeration of the population is conducted in a 
    manner consistent with the Constitution and laws of the United 
    States;
        (2) the sole constitutional purpose of the decennial 
    enumeration of the population is the apportionment of 
    Representatives in Congress among the several States;
        (3) section 2 of the 14th article of amendment to the 
    Constitution clearly states that Representatives are to be 
    ``apportioned among the several States according to their 
    respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each 
    State'';
        (4) article I, section 2, clause 3 of the Constitution clearly 
    requires an ``actual Enumeration'' of the population, and section 
    195 of title 13, United States Code, clearly provides ``Except for 
    the determination of population for purposes of apportionment of 
    Representatives in Congress among the several States, the Secretary 
    shall, if he considers it feasible, authorize the use of the 
    statistical method known as `sampling' in carrying out the 
    provisions of this title.'';
        (5) the decennial enumeration of the population is one of the 
    most critical constitutional functions our Federal Government 
    performs;
        (6) it is essential that the decennial enumeration of the 
    population be as accurate as possible, consistent with the 
    Constitution and laws of the United States;
        (7) the use of statistical sampling or statistical adjustment 
    in conjunction with an actual enumeration to carry out the census 
    with respect to any segment of the population poses the risk of an 
    inaccurate, invalid, and unconstitutional census;
        (8) the decennial enumeration of the population is a complex 
    and vast undertaking, and if such enumeration is conducted in a 
    manner that does not comply with the requirements of the 
    Constitution or laws of the United States, it would be 
    impracticable for the States to obtain, and the courts of the 
    United States to provide, meaningful relief after such enumeration 
    has been conducted; and
        (9) Congress is committed to providing the level of funding 
    that is required to perform the entire range of constitutional 
    census activities, with a particular emphasis on accurately 
    enumerating all individuals who have historically been 
    undercounted, and toward this end, Congress expects--
            (A) aggressive and innovative promotion and outreach 
        campaigns in hard-to-count communities;
            (B) the hiring of enumerators from within those 
        communities;
            (C) continued cooperation with local government on address 
        list development; and
            (D) maximized census employment opportunities for 
        individuals seeking to make the transition from welfare to 
        work.
    (b) Any person aggrieved by the use of any statistical method in 
violation of the Constitution or any provision of law (other than this 
Act), in connection with the 2000 or any later decennial census, to 
determine the population for purposes of the apportionment or 
redistricting of Members in Congress, may in a civil action obtain 
declaratory, injunctive, and any other appropriate relief against the 
use of such method.
    (c) For purposes of this section--
        (1) the use of any statistical method as part of a dress 
    rehearsal or other simulation of a census in preparation for the 
    use of such method, in a decennial census, to determine the 
    population for purposes of the apportionment or redistricting of 
    Members in Congress shall be considered the use of such method in 
    connection with that census; and
        (2) the report ordered by title VIII of Public Law 105-18 and 
    the Census 2000 Operational Plan shall be deemed to constitute 
    final agency action regarding the use of statistical methods in the 
    2000 decennial census, thus making the question of their use in 
    such census sufficiently concrete and final to now be reviewable in 
    a judicial proceeding.
    (d) For purposes of this section, an aggrieved person (described in 
subsection (b)) includes--
        (1) any resident of a State whose congressional representation 
    or district could be changed as a result of the use of a

    (e)(1) Any action brought under this section shall be heard and 
determined by a district court of three judges in accordance with 
section 2284 of title 28, United States Code. The chief judge of the 
United States court of appeals for each circuit shall, to the extent 
practicable and consistent with the avoidance of unnecessary delay, 
consolidate, for all purposes, in one district court within that 
circuit, all actions pending in that circuit under this section. Any 
party to an action under this section shall be precluded from seeking 
any consolidation of that action other than is provided in this 
paragraph. In selecting the district court in which to consolidate such 
actions, the chief judge shall consider the convenience of the parties 
and witnesses and efficient conduct of such actions. Any final order or 
injunction of a United States district court that is issued pursuant to 
an action brought under this section shall be reviewable by appeal 
directly to the Supreme Court of the United States. Any such appeal 
shall be taken by a notice of appeal filed within 10 days after such 
order is entered; and the jurisdictional statement shall be filed 
within 30 days after such order is entered. No stay of an order issued 
pursuant to an action brought under this section may be issued by a 
single Justice of the Supreme Court.
    (2) It shall be the duty of a United States district court hearing 
an action brought under this section and the Supreme Court of the 
United States to advance on the docket and to expedite to the greatest 
possible extent the disposition of any such matter.
    (f) Any agency or entity within the executive branch having 
authority with respect to the carrying out of a decennial census may in 
a civil action obtain a declaratory judgment respecting whether or not 
the use of a statistical method, in connection with such census, to 
determine the population for the purposes of the apportionment or 
redistricting of Members in Congress is forbidden by the Constitution 
and laws of the United States.
    (g) The Speaker of the House of Representatives or the Speaker's 
designee or designees may commence or join in a civil action, for and 
on behalf of the House of Representatives, under any applicable law, to 
prevent the use of any statistical method, in connection with the 
decennial census, to determine the population for purposes of the 
apportionment or redistricting of Members in Congress. It shall be the 
duty of the Office of the General Counsel of the House of 
Representatives to represent the House in such civil action, according 
to the directions of the Speaker. The Office of the General Counsel of 
the House of Representatives may employ the services of outside counsel 
and other experts for this purpose.
    (h) For purposes of this section and section 210--
        (1) the term ``statistical method'' means an activity related 
    to the design, planning, testing, or implementation of the use of 
    representative sampling, or any other statistical procedure, 
    including statistical adjustment, to add or subtract counts to or 
    from the enumeration of the population as a result of statistical 
    inference; and
        (2) the term ``census'' or ``decennial census'' means a 
    decennial enumeration of the population.

Act for purposes of the 2000 decennial census shall be used by the 
Bureau of the Census to plan, test, and become prepared to implement a 
2000 decennial census, without using statistical methods, which shall 
result in the percentage of the total population actually enumerated 
being as close to 100 percent as possible. In both the 2000 decennial 
census, and any dress rehearsal or other simulation made in preparation 
for the 2000 decennial census, the number of persons enumerated without 
using statistical methods must be publicly available for all levels of 
census geography which are being released by the Bureau of the Census

of the House among the States as a result of the 2000 decennial census. 
Simultaneously with any other release or reporting of any of the 
information described in the preceding sentence through other means, 
such information shall be made available to the public on the Internet. 
These files of the Bureau of the Census shall be available concurrently 
to the release of the original files to the same recipients, on 
identical media, and at a comparable price. They shall contain the 
number of persons enumerated without using statistical methods and any 
additions or subtractions thereto. These files shall be based on data 
gathered and generated by the Bureau of the Census in its official 
capacity.
