The Congressional Reapportionment Act of 2011 was a apportionment bill signed and ratified by the US Congress in anticipation of the 2012 redistricting that would come with the 2012 US Elections. It "lifted" the cap on the number of seats in the House, with growth in proportion to the growth of the American population (based on the cube root law, the number of seats being based on the cube root of the total population). Based on the 2010 US Census, America had a population of 308.9 million and thus had 676 seats in the House of Representatives (an additional 241).

Initial Seats

The initial amount of seats decided post-ratification (used for all elections from 2012 to 2020).
