Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Data Governance and Organization to Support Equity and Racial Justice Act.

Provides that the demographic classifications established shall be reviewed and updated as necessary every 5 years. Provides for exemptions from this reporting requirement. Provides that the Governor's Office of Equity shall establish a project implementation team to oversee the implementation of the Act.
