The House Oversight Committee announced Tuesday that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has agreed to testify on March 14, focusing on a citizenship question that was set to be added to the 2020 Census questionnaire.
Why it matters: Last week, a federal judge in New York ruled against the Trump administration's decision to include the question, siding with critics who argue that it's a partisan move that could cause legal and undocumented immigrants to refuse to participate.
