JUNE 13, 2018

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:

An initiative to divide California into three states has received enough signatures to qualify it for the November ballot, the California secretary of state’s office confirmed Tuesday.

The three-states campaign, dubbed “Cal-3,” submitted more than 600,000 signatures.

Tim Draper, a billionaire Silicon Valley venture capital investor, sponsored the ballot measure to divide America’s most populous state into three jurisdictions, the Mercury News of San Jose, Calif., reported.

The article reports the proposal would divide the state as follows:

— California would be made up of six mainly coastal counties, including Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.

— Northern California would include 40 counties from Santa Cruz to the Oregon border, including San Francisco and Sacramento, the state’s current capital.

— Southern California would comprise 12 counties, including Fresno, Kern, Orange and San Diego counties.

Even if voters approved the plan, it would still require approval from the California Assembly and Senate, the Los Angeles Times reported.

    I saw this when I looked up ballot initiatives in my State. I like the idea of splitting the State into Northern and Southern, but not sure I like California being split three ways.

    Thanks a bunch! (Sarcasm) Those of us on the east side of the Cascades and the Sierra Nevadas are the exact opposite of Sacramento and the Bay area. We even have a totally different water system. We’d like to have the state of Jefferson that does Not include the present capital or bay are.
