    Refers to the Census and the timing thereof. The Constitution does not require the Congress to re-apportion immediately after the Census. It only requires Congress to re-apportion based on the most recent Census at some point before the next Census is undertaken.

    Congress could wait until the very last moment to take up re-apportionment.
