New California’ declares independence from state blames high taxes & poor services

This would leave the large urban areas such as Sacramento, Los Angeles and San Francisco to form the other state. "High taxes, education, you name it, and we're rated around 48th or 50th from a business climate and standpoint in California", New California founder Robert Paul Preston told KOVR. They hosted a small ceremony in Marysville, California. Five years after the state was ratified by the US, a group of Southern Californians tried to carve the state into three parts unsuccessfully.

A rendering of what California and New California would look like under a proposal to split the state in two.

The history of the present Governor and Government of California is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of a Tyranny over the Counties of New California and the State of California.

The movement calls for "a free and Independent State" with "full power to establish and maintain law and order, to promote general prosperity", according to its "Declaration of Independence", released on Monday. "New California" would be split into coastal cities and rural areas, because it is the most populated state.

Harmony closes its campuses due to inclement weather
PHENIX CITY SCHOOLS - Due to pending inclement weather , there will be NO school activities after 6pm today (Tuesday). The Henry County School System will be closed Wednesday, Jan. 17 due to severe winter weather in the forecast.

But in the unlikely event that California's legislature ever approved the separation; the national Democrat Party would never let it get through Congress. Democrats will never surrender 55 sure Electoral votes. Advocates for New California say that it would have 25-27 seats in the House.

As a population, the state is by far the largest in the USA, with nearly 40m inhabitants, 10m more than the next largest state, Texas with a 28m population.

Preston emphasizes that the leaders of the movement do not want to leave the US, just make it better. Their area, which is predominately conservative and Republican, wants to separate from the other areas that are predominately brown and liberal. This means that they will need the approval of Californians as well as Congress, which doesn't seem probable.

Carving up California is nothing new.
