It contained the cities of Crowley, Eunice, Jennings, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Opelousas, Sulphur and Ville Platte. During the 2010 redistricting process Louisiana had one seat in the U.S. House taken due to population changes across the country. The 7th congressional district no longer exists following the 2012 elections.
