Michigan To Lose US-House Seat
Tue, 27 Apr 2021 06:00:29 EDT

Michigan's decreasing population growth over the past decade will cost the state a U.S. House seat, continuing a decades-long trend thatís finding both job-seekers and retirees fleeing to other states.

The U.S. Census Bureau didn't immediately release state population figures Monday, but said Michigan lost one congressional seat.

Michigan's population grew for decades, from 7.8 million in 1960 to more than 9.9 million in 2000. It recorded a slight decline in the census 10 years ago, to 9.8 million.

Over time, Michiganís congressional seats have been taken over by faster-growing states, mostly in the Sunbelt.
