The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee held a hearing on the nomination of Robert M. Groves to be the Department of Commerce Census Director. He was introduced by Michigan Senator Carl Levin.

Mr. Groves ruled out the use of sampling methods for the 2010 Census but also said that he remains worried about fixing a persistent undercount of hard-to-reach populations, typically minorities living in dense areas. Under questioning, he also made clear that he would not tolerate political interference either from congressional Republicans or the White House and will step down from his post if necessary. close
