Kansas may not lose a Congressional seat once the 2010 U.S. Census is completed, according to a census official.

There has been speculation the Kansas delegation in the U.S. House of Representatives could be reduced from four to three because other areas of the country have shown population growth greater than Kansas.

Dennis Johnson, regional director for the U.S. Census, said Monday that the latest data do not show Kansas losing a seat. But he says Missouri could.

But Johnson says that could all change by April 1, 2010, the official census count day.

Johnson was in Topeka on Monday for the official opening of the Kansas Census headquarters.
