Texas will have 38 congressional seats as a result of the latest U.S. census. It’s one of six states to gain seats, and it’s the only state that will get more than one.
Because of its population growth over the last century, Texas has never lost a seat in Congress. The state has gone from 18 congressional districts in 1910 to 38 based on its population count following the 2020 census.
