Proposal to split California into three states earns spot on ballot | TheHill

- A ballot initiative that aims to split the current state of California into three states is now eligible for placement on the November 2018 election ballot. He backed a proposal to turn California into six states in 2014 but it failed to get the required number of signatures to qualify and the measure was not presented to voters.

The new California would consist of coastal regions including Monterey County and Los Angeles. The upper portion of the state, which would include San Francisco and the state capital Sacramento, would become Northern California.

Southern California: San Diego, San Bernardino, Orange, Riverside, Mono, Madera, Inyo, Tulare, Fresno, Kings, Kern and Imperial counties.

Investor Tim Draper is backing the effort, and previous year he told the Times that carving California into three states had its merits.

The three new states would consist of Northern California, extending from the San Francisco Bay Area north to the OR border and east to the Nevada border; California, including Los Angeles County and extending northwest along the Central Coast; and Southern California, including San Diego and the rest of the southern part of the state. "States will be more accountable to us and can cooperate and compete for citizens". "Some of the legal and practical issues of splitting up California suggest there is a high likelihood that the process would take many years to complete".

Californians will face a choice this November of whether to divide the nation's most populous state into three, an effort that would radically shake up not only the West Coast, but the entire nation. Draper's proposal says the initiative, acting under California's constitutional power of voters to write their own laws, would serve as legislative consent. Dividing it into three smaller Californias, he claims, would lead to "better decision making", "a dramatically more effective education system", and "more reliable roads".

The new California would have a per capita income of $53,000 and southern California around $45,000.

In the United States Senate, four more members would need to be added.

Last October, the state's nonpartisan Legislative Analysts Office (LAO) released a review of Draper's plan. California voters already approved breaking up the state in 1859, but Congress did not act on it.
