‘Crazy Political Environment’ Puts Plan For 3 Californias On Ballot

‘Crazy Political Environment’ Puts Plan For 3 Californias On Ballot

Now Draper is back with a more modest proposal to create three Californias, and he's managed to spend enough money and get enough signatures for it to appear on the November 2018 general-election ballot, cheek by jowl with more conventional initiatives on matters like gas and property taxes. "Southern California" would include farm communities such as Fresno and Bakersfield, the inland counties of San Bernardino and Riverside, and the San Diego area. Proponents of the ballot measure say California is just too big and unmanageable. "How do you divide up a one-state transportation set of systems, water delivery in one state that's already a fight as one California, our energy grid?" wondered Carl Guardino, Leadership Group CEO.

If the measure is approved by voters, the governor will transfer the notice of state approval to Congress, which will vote to ratify the creation of the new three-state structure.

Now, the legendary Silicon Valley investor is making headway on a longtime and perhaps unrealistic effort to split California into three separate states: Northern California, California (new), and Southern California. While California's differences run deep, they may only be heightened in closer quarters. President Donald Trump's victory in 2016 led to a ballot movement to have California secede from the U.S. That effort failed to gain enough signatures last year but was started again this year, CNBC reported.

"It will simply divide the state into smaller, more manageable populations". If passes and becomes a reality, a political analyst said it would only create more issues that would take years upon years to solve.

Whittaker favoured in non-title rematch with Romero for UFC 225
UFC main event fights in pay-per-view events have been dropping like flies these past few months and UFC 225 is no different. Holly Holm fights Megan Anderson in a bout that could determine women's featherweight champion Cris Cyborg's next opponent.

Draper has reasons for wanting to slice and dice his home state.

California, covering the Central Coast from Monterey to Los Angeles.

Will there soon be three Californias? And one of those states, based on past election results, could be won by a Republican.

"B$3 ecause the newly created "Southern California" state could easily vote for a Republican presidential candidate (as noted above, Mitt Romney beat Barack Obama in 2012 in this region) and give its 18 or so electors to a Republican, then Democrats would run a serious risk moving from a 55-0 advantage in California to something like 41-18", said Mr. Amar in a September 8 post on Verdict. "Splitting California into three new states will triple the amount of special interests, lobbyists, politicians and bureaucracy".

Russian Federation rips Saudi Arabia 5-0 in World Cup opener
The World Cup has received special attention this year in the kingdom as its team will play for the first time since 2006. Saudi Arabia also play Uruguay and Egypt in Group A.

It would be the first division of an existing US state since the creation of West Virginia in 1863.

Last year, an effort dubbed Calexit sought to bring the question of whether California should secede from the USA to this year's ballot.

A state can not split without the approval of the U.S. Congress, and the president would have the power to approve or veto any vote taken by Congress.

Two Koreas agree to completely restore military communication lines
John Kennedy, R-Louisiana, also defended Trump, saying he is using his words to engage in "diplomacy" with North Korea. So Pompeo had some explaining to do as he traveled to Seoul to brief the allies on what transpired in Singapore.
