It’s official: 10 seats in US House for WA

OLYMPIA — While we've all been proceeding on the assumption that Washington will get a tenth congressional seat this year, it hasn't really been official.

As in not signed, sealed and delivered official from the folks who have the ultimate say in such things, the U.S. House of Representatives.

But the Washington Secretary of State's office now has in its hot collective hands a sealed notice from the Clerk of the House, stating Washington shall be entitled in the 113th Congress (which starts in 2013) and each succeeding congress through 2022, to

TEN REPRESENTATIVES in the House of Representatives.

Capital letters are the clerk's. Not sure if all caps in official documents is like shouting with all caps in an e-mail.
