Amarillo, Texas - After months of census takers knocking on doors and sending out multiple forms, the 2010 count is now in.
The U.S. Census results released today, indicate the state of Texas is playing a key part in much of the data.
Texas gained the most congressional seats this year, which adds 4 more representatives and brings us to a total of 36.
Senator Kel Seliger says having more representatives gives the Lone Star State more clout in Washington. But he says this changes the way things will happen within the state, as four new representatives and four new districts are added.
