NY will loose two seats when the current 29-member Congressional delegation drops to 27 (the lowest number since 1823). Massachusetts will be losing one of its 10 seats in the House. State lawmakers will be tasked will the responsibility of drawing new district lines, which must be completed in time for the 2012 elections.
