  Utah Files Lawsuit Over LDS Missionary Census Exclusion
The Utah Attorney General's office filed a lawsuit in US District Court Wednesday morning, alleging that the US Census Bureau discriminated against LDS missionaries in the 2000 census. According to the complaint and to Bureau statements, the Bureau excluded LDS missionaries and other US citizens living abroad in its count while including overseas Federal employees such as diplomats and military personnel. As a result of this "disparate treatment," North Carolina was apportioned an additional seat in the US Congress that would have otherwise gone to Utah.
