Yesterday, the results of the 2010 census were released and Iowa will lose 1 seat in the House of Representatives. Second District Congressman Dave Loebsack says this loss will not take effect until January 2013. He notes the redistricting process will be done by an independent and non-partisan commission. Loebsack says when the new districts are selected, they will be based on population and no counties will be split into different districts. He says he is honored to represent voters in his current district and says he would be honored to represent anyone in any new counties that he might get as well.
