Reapportionment isn't due until after the 2010 census, but analysis of the 2006 population indicates the West and South would continue to gain Congressional seats, while the Northeast and Midwest would lose seats. If the 2006 population trends continue through 2010, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada and Utah would each gain one Congressional seat and Texas would gain two. States losing one seat include Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
