Washington gains House seat

Washington will have a new congressional district when voters go to the polls in 2012, upping its population in the U.S. House of Representatives from nine to 10, U.S. Census Bureau officials announced Tuesday. Idaho, which had the fourth-highest percentage growth of any state, will stay at two House seats. That’s what census officials said as they announced the official population of the United States, which stands at 308,745,538. That’s a jump of 9.7 percent for the nation as a whole.
