Texas would tack on two additional seats, reaching a total of 35 after the 2010 census. California, Florida, Georgia and Nevada would add one seat each. New York and Ohio would each lose another House seat by 2010 if current population trends continued, dropping to totals of 27 and 16 seats, respectively.
