It is getting worse. 

From:  the Climate Justice Network...
Good Morning,

Bills have been introduced in BOTH houses of Congress to block federal spending on data on racial disparities at the community level.  If this bill is passed, it would have devastating effects on many programs of research, as well as the pursuit of social justice.  Please do all you can to get the word out through your networks and mount a vigorous opposition to this legislation!

H.R. 482, "...no Federal funds may be used to design, build, maintain, utilize or provide access to a Federal database of geospatial information on community racial disparities or disparities in access to affordable housing."
