Alabama May Lose a Seat in The U.S. House.

...and Alabama is not alone. It's not losing population, but other states are gaining more, and while every state gets two Senators, the House seats are proportioned based on population.

 
RealClearPolitics has the projections following the 2020 census:

 


Alabama: -1 (to 6)
Arizona: +1 (to 10)
Colorado: +1 (to 8)
Florida: +2 (to 29)
Illinois: -1 (to 17)
Michigan: -1 (to 13)
Minnesota: -1 (to 7)
New York: -1 (to 26)
North Carolina: +1 (to 14)
Ohio: -1 (to 15)
Oregon: +1 (to 6)
Pennsylvania: -1 (to 17)
Rhode Island: -1 (to 1)
Texas: +3 (to 39)
West Virginia: -1 (to 2)


At least we're not Rhode Island, projected to have... just one member of The House. 

So why is Alabama's population not keeping up with the others?
