Louisiana Politics: Census Says State To Lose Congressional Seat Due To Slow Growth
Written by 

With the new census information for 2010 now becoming available, how will Louisiana be impacted in Congress?  Louisiana ranked in the five slowest growing states and will lose a Congressional seat.

A special session is expected to be called to deal with reapportionment.
 

According to the US Census, "Louisiana grew by 1.4% in the last decade increasing from 4,468,976 in 2000 to 4,533,372 in 2010.  This low growth rate ranked among the five slowest growing states in the U.S. and resulted in the loss of a Congressional seat.  The only state to lose population was Michigan with -0.6%. Neighbors Texas and Florida gained representation along with Georgia and South Carolina among other states."

Watch for more information to be released at:  www.census.gov or 2010.census.gov
