3 states update Measure To Split California Into Three States Qualifies For November Ballot

It received more than 402,468 valid signatures, more than the amount required by state law, thanks to an ambitious campaign, called Cal 3, and financial backing from the early investor in Tesla, Skype, and Hotmail.

The measure would cut Northern California off just north of Fresno, keeping coastal California to Los Angeles as its own state and spinning inland Southern California and San Diego off into a third.

The remaining 40 counties would be part of the state of Northern California or a name chosen by its residents.

The initiative, often referred to as "Cal-3", was sponsored by billionaire venture capitalist Tim Draper.

"The citizens of the whole state would be better served by three smaller state governments while preserving the historical boundaries of the various counties, cities, and towns", Draper wrote to the Attorney General's office when explaining his proposal.

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.

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

Proponents of the proposal argue that Californians would be better off with smaller governments that can tailor their policies and actions. And while California now has two USA senators, the new bloc of three Californias would have six under the new proposal. "States will be more accountable to us and can cooperate and compete for citizens".

Any effort to break up the state would still have to receive Congressional approval.

"This isn't as easy or straightforward as its supporters want to make out", Shaun Bowler, a political science professor at UC Riverside, told Mercury News.

While proposals about separating California have been bandied about for years, Golden State voters will have their say on this particular initiative in November. A poll by Survey USA in April found that only 17 percent of voters approved of the split, while 72 percent were against.
