Senate Bill To Require Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity Data By 2030 Census

Marchers carry an LGBTQ pride flag during the Utah Pride Parade in Salt Lake City in June. The Senate bill would require the Census Bureau to protect all sexual orientation and gender identity information it collects.

A group of Democrats says the data could help more LGBTQ people get access to social services and strengthen civil rights protections. Some privacy experts worry the data could be used against people.
