From Times wire services

As many as 17 seats in the House will shift following the 1990 Census and blacks and Latinos could pick up between six and 10 of them, a study by the Population Reference Bureau said today.

According to the nonprofit research group's projections, 17 seats in Congress will shift following the 1990 Census with seven states--California, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Texas and Arizona--gaining seats, and 11 states--Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Kansas and Montana--likely to lose one or more seats.
