NEW YORK (AP) -- Census data released Monday means that New York will lose one seat in Congress as a result of national population shifts.

The state's delegation will shrink from 27 to 26. It is one of seven states losing a member of congress as a result of the 2020 census.

The state stands to lose out on more than political clout: The census also determines the distribution of $1.5 trillion in federal funding each year.

Pennsylvania also lost a House seat. For more information on that, click here.
