Proposal to split California into three states makes November ballot

Proposal to split California into 3 states goes to ballot

"Therefore, pursuant to Elections Code section 9033, the initiative measure is eligible for the November 6, 2018, General Election ballot and all further signature verification can be terminated", the office announced.

The initiative was sponsored by California-based venture capitalist Tim Draper, who had previously sponsored ballot initiatives to partition his home state.

California voters will soon get the chance to vote on whether to break the state into three parts.

Cal 3, as this campaign is called, would create the states of Northern California, Southern California and a narrow central coast strip retaining the name California, as described on the website. The initiative did not qualify for the ballot. Now Californians are set to vote on the "Division of California into Three States" initiative in November.

Northern California would consist of 40 counties stretching from OR south to Santa Cruz County, then east to Merced and Mariposa counties.

According to the ballot measure, Northern California will consist of counties in the northern part of the state, including Sacramento and San Francisco Counties.

Trump have complied with the rules and restrictions as set out by the Office of Government Ethics", he said. President Trump's daughter and son-in-law have continued to invest heavily and trade in real estate .

If voters approve the measure, it would still have to be ratified by Congress.

In the history of the USA, there have been four state splits. Another group proposes the creation of another state called New California, comprising mostly inland counties, over grievances of high-state taxes, regulation and single party politics.

The initiative divides all 58 counties in California into three separate states.

"This milestone is a testament to the energized spirit of Californians wanting to create a better future for themselves and their communities", said Citizens for Cal 3 spokeswoman Peggy Grande. "And risk aversion looms large in these matters, which helps explain why no new states have been added to the United States in over 50 years, and no new state has been created out of an existing state for more than 150 years", he wrote.

"It's going to cause political chaos", said Maviglio, "it's a major destruction from the real issues facing our state". Becoming three states would triple the number of U.S. Senators from two to six. Draper proposed similar measures in 2012 and 2014, but those efforts failed after election officials invalidated numerous signatures collected.

Many times. The California Legislature agreed to split off areas south of the Tehachapi Mountains into a separate territory in 1859. California is broken. We must split this state up if any of us has a hope of surviving the debt crisis California has got us into but if its another form of tyranny for us, then no we are not in favor of it. He says dividing state parks and the education system would be costly and a logistical nightmare.
