New York will lose one congressional seat under new Census data

New York will lose one seat in the House of Representatives next year, according to data released by the US Census Bureau on Monday.

The Empire State’s delegation will shrink from 27 to 26 as a result of national population shifts.

It is one of seven states poised to lose a seat in the House. The others are California, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Five states will gain one seat — Florida, Colorado, Montana, North Carolina and Oregon — while Texas will gain two.
