For the first time ever, California is about to lose a seat in Congress.
Because of a decrease in population, California is losing one seat in the U.S. Congress. Data from the U.S. Census Bureau shows more people left the Golden State in the last decade than came in, and in the last two years alone, out-migration was around 500,000 people. Political analysts predict the lost congressional seat will likely come from either downtown Los Angeles or East L.A., both represented by Democratic lawmakers.
Updated Census information shows that states like Florida and Texas are seeing their representations increase according to population data.
