The Census Bureau has released the results of its 2020 census, showing the U.S. population grew at its slowest pace since the 1930s. The results will reshape political power in the House of Representatives, where Texas will gain two seats. Meanwhile, North Carolina, Florida, Colorado, Oregon and Montana will each gain one congressional seat. New York’s congressional delegation will shrink by one member, after coming up short by a mere 89 people. Also losing a House seat are Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois and California.
