CA, NY, IL to Lose Congressional Seats, TX and FL to Gain in Census-Driven Reapportionment

Six states will pick up seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and seven will lose under the Congressional apportioning mandated by Title 2 of the U.S. Code. The reapportionment occurs as the result of population shifts recorded in the 2020 Census, initial results of which were released Monday.

Texas will gain two seats in the House, while Colorado, Florida, Montana, North Carolina and Oregon each gain one seat. California will lose a Congressional seat for the first time in its history as a state, and Illinois, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia will also lose one seat each.

Come the 2022 midterms, the reapportionment could shift the balance of power in the House. Texas’ gain reflects both a rapid population growth in Southern and Western states and a “political power shift from one region of the country to the other,” the Brennan Center’s Michael Li told USA Today.
