SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— A plan to split California into six separate states may have to wait until 2016 to go to voters with the deadline for the November ballot soon approaching.
Meanwhile, the Silicon Valley capitalist behind the proposal said he doesn’t know if he’ll have enough signatures to qualify for this year.
It’s not really a new idea. After all, aren’t we in the midst of secession now? The proposal for Jefferson State (a proposed would-be 51st state) has been going on forever in Northern California and would include parts of Southern Oregon. Some of the county board of supervisors even voted to secede.
