Census: California Gains No Seats


The U.S. population didn’t grow that much. It grew at Depression Era levels.

AP reports:

The total national count was 308,745,538, representing the slowest growth over the last decade since the Great Depression.

California doesn’t gain any seats – it also doesn’t lose any. NYT writes:

By that new count, Texas will gain four new seats, Florida will gain two, while New York and Ohio each lose two. Fourteen other states gained or lost one seat. The gainers included Arizona, Georgia, South Carolina, Utah and Nevada, and the losers included Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Louisiana.
