Plan to split California into 3 states eligible for November ballot

3 states update Measure To Split California Into 3 States Qualifies For November Ballot

Draper's original plan had been to split California into six smaller states, but that campaign failed to collect enough signatures and died in 2014.

This is the third time Draper has attempted to split up the state. It would consist of Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey and San Benito counties. The massive wealth generated by Silicon Valley has driven median household income in Northern California to $63,000. "Californians deserve a better future".

Silicon Valley, home to companies like Facebook and Apple, would be separated from much of California.

"Splitting California into three new states will triple the amount of special interests, lobbyists, politicians and bureaucracy".

"We are not a one-size-fits-all state", Cal-3 spokeswoman Peggy Grande said.

"What is of greater importance to a state than its geographic boundaries?" He's since updated it to include Tulare County as part of Southern California. Plan to split CA into 3 states submits signatures CAL 3 is led by venture capitalist Tim Draper.

What had Ian Blackford said? The suspension prompted all SNP MPs to walk out of Commons chamber, pointing and jeering at Tory MPs. But Theresa May retorted: "We do expect that the outcome of Brexit will be a significant increase in Holyrood power".

"California government has rotted", Draper told the Mercury News in an interview last month.

The last time an existing state split up, it was the 1860s and a civil war broke out.

It would also include population centers like much of the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, and everything north.

January 17: New California?

"None of those problems disappear", she said, "but what does happen is the solutions become more representative of the people they affect".

Voters supported breaking up California into two states in 1859, but Congress never moved forward with the proposal.

But it probably won't come to that. If the state's residents vote for the proposal, California's legislature would have a year, beginning in January of 2019, to implement it.
