Provided further, That none of the funds provided in this or any other Act for any fiscal year for the collection of census data may be used to ask questions that the Secretary of Commerce determines would inhibit the ability of the Bureau of the Census to comply with its constitutional mandate to count the whole number of persons residing in each State.''.
