Splitting California into three states: Would voters say yes?

Hosted by

A proposal to divide California into three states will likely be on the November ballot. More than enough signatures have been gathered -- they just need to be verified. Venture capitalist Tim Draper is sponsoring the measure. It envisions a Northern California from Silicon Valley on up; a Southern California going from San Diego and encompassing Riverside and the Central Valley up to Fresno; and then California -- a sliver on the coast from Los Angeles up to Monterey. Draper has said the three states would mean lower taxes, better infrastructure and better education for all three.
