H.R. 5388 would expand the number of Members in the House of Representatives from 435 to 437 beginning with the 110th Congress (i.e, in 2007). The legislation would provide the District of Columbia with one Representative and add one new at-large Member. Under H.R. 5388, the new at-large seat would initially be assigned to the state of Utah and then would be reallocated based on the next Congressional apportionment based on the 2010 census.
