Arizona’s Growing Population May Gain its 10th Congressional Seat

Thursday, December 27th, 2018 azrealtycom

While Arizona continues population growth, it is likely Arizona representation on Capitol Hill will add one more seat in a couple years.

A study shows Arizona could get a 10th congressional seat as a result of population shifts in the U.S. With the House of Representatives limited to 435 total seats, Arizona’s gain will mean another state’s loss.

Several states in the Northeast and Midwest such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois, and New York — are projected to lose seats in Congress.

In addition to Arizona, states in the South and West, including Colorado, Oregon, Florida, and North Carolina, are projected to gain seats.

The shift would give a bit more power to Arizona’s delegation on matters ranging from immigration to defense spending, all of which could impact local businesses in a positive way.
