Plan to Cut California in Six Pieces Could Head to Ballot
Supporters of a plan to cut California into six states say they now have enough signatures to put their proposal on a general-election ballot in the state. Backed by tech industry investor Timothy Draper, the proposal would need more than 807,000 valid signatures to become a constitutional amendment. Supporters say the plan would make the state more governable. If verified, the plan would be voted on in 2016 and require approval from both California's Legislature as well as the U.S. Congress.
