On Monday, March 18 at 1:00PM, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD), a member of the Senate Finance Committee and representative for nearly 300,000 federal civilian and military workers, will hold a town hall with employees at the U.S. Census Bureau headquarters in Lanham, Maryland. The Census Bureau is one Maryland’s 60 non-military federal facilities. Senator Cardin will provide an update on the federal budget, including sequestration and the continuing resolution now being debated in the Senate to fund the government through the end of the FY13 fiscal year.  After brief remarks, the majority of the session will be dedicated to Q&A from the Census Bureau employees in Lanham and other Census Bureau locations across the country.
