The Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) is amending its regulations to establish cutoff dates for the recognition of boundary changes for the 2010 Census. This amendment is necessary, as the existing cutoff dates are out of date. Upon effectiveness of this rule, the Census Bureau will recognize only those boundaries legally in effect on January 1, 2010, that have been reported officially to the Census Bureau no later than March 1, 2010.
