Congressional Reapportionment?

Answer

Congressional Reapportionment is the process by which the House of Representatives in the USA are redistributed among the states following each mandated decennial census. This process is important to the state in that it increases or decreases the number of seats a state has in the House/Congress (not the Senate). It also means that more representatives making the state have more influence and it increases or decreases a state's number of electoral votes.
