Could California be split into 3 states?

Could California be split into 3 states?

"If I were a Republican, I might say, 'Well, this could be our turf'". "But just like restarting Windows, it might take a few years".

In 2014, Draper failed with a similar proposal: To split the Golden State into six smaller governments. California, admitted to the Union on September 9, 1850, has faced more than 200 attempts at boundary reconfiguration, divisions and even secession over the course of its history, the report said.

California Secretary of State Alex Padilla will certify the initiative as qualified for the November ballot on June 28, his office said Tuesday.

The measure calls for three smaller state governments: Northern California, encompassing San Francisco and 39 other counties; California, covering Los Angeles and five other counties; and Southern California, accounting for areas including Fresno and San Diego.

California would break into three states - Northern California, California and Southern California.

The proponents of the initiative attempted to exempt legislative approval by including language in the measure that says the people of California "provide the legislative consent for the formation of three new states to Congress as required by the United States Constitution".

A breakup would be complex, as the state's businesses and universities - even its water system - are interconnected and dependent on one another. Any state assets that fall within a state's new boundary would be allotted to that state.

Ma estimated that Grab will reach over US$1 billion in revenue this year, as its users exceed 100 million in the region. Toyota said the Singapore-based startup has big growth potential in a region that is home to around 600 million people.

California, which would be made up of Los Angeles, Monterey, San Benito, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. And in 1863, West Virginia became a state during the Civil War under unusual circumstances, after a Union-approved government was named for Virginia, from which West Virginia then seceded.

"Political representation of California's diverse population and economies has rendered the state almost ungovernable".

Many times. The California Legislature agreed to split off areas south of the Tehachapi Mountains into a separate territory in 1859. There the measure would face an uphill battle, given that it effectively gives present-day California an additional four Senate seats and would end the Democratic lock of a state with 55 electoral votes.

Northern California's border goes from Santa Cruz county, up to the OR border, including Merced and Mariposa counties. For several weeks that year in the town of Yreka, people armed themselves with hunting rifles, created roadblocks on U.S. Highway 99 marking their hypothetical new borders and handed out their "State of Jefferson Proclamation of Independence" to passing motorists. That part of the state is more Latino and getting more Latino than the rest of the state.

Their movement died, though, after Pearl Harbor. That would dilute the power of other states and increase the power of what used to be a single state if its six senators banded together on various issues. Employees and entrepreneurs who split their time between Hollywood and Silicon Valley would essentially be working in two different places with their own tax structures. But in 2012, he turned his attention to reinventing California. "Californians deserve a better future". The state government, he has said, is "rotting".

Vikram Amar, a law professor from the University of IL who had studied Draper's plan, told the Times that based on the last election, the Electoral College split by the plan would allow a Republican to win one of the states.

But it probably won't come to that.
