Census Count Could Impact Northwest Missouri Legislative Representation

Missouri 2nd District State Representative J Eggleston says the census count taken shows most Northwest Missouri counties lost population in the last 10 years.


He says the population loss could lead to fewer rural legislators.


Separate committees are assigned to determine the boundaries for the congressional, state senate, and state representative districts in Missouri. Representative Eggleston will be on the committee that will create the congressional districts for the state.
