The Supreme Court of California struck down a ballot initiative Wednesday to divide the state into three states — California, Northern California and Southern California.

Proposition 9, which qualified for the November ballot with 402,468 signatures on June 12, would have appeared on the ballot in the general election, but will no longer be an issue residents of the state can vote on, according to ABC News.

Planning - Conservation - League - Organization - Measure

The Planning and Conservation League, an environmental organization, opposed this measure and sued California Secretary of State Alex Padilla and Cal 3 founder and venture capital investor Tim Draper on July 9.

The organization believes the initiative would in effect abolish the state constitution, something that cannot be lawfully enacted by a ballot measure vote, according to ABC News.

Proposition - Scheme - Billions - California - Taxpayer

“Proposition 9 was a costly, flawed scheme that will waste billions of California taxpayer dollars, create chaos in public services including safeguarding our environment and literally eliminate the State of California — all to satisfy the whims of one billionaire,” Howard Penn, executive director of the Planning and Conservation League said in a statement, according to The Sacramento Bee.

“We are thankful for the opportunity to save Californians from having to vote on a billionaire’s folly.”

California - Supreme - Court - Order - Ruling

The California Supreme Court order revealed in the ruling “significant” concerns over validity.

Do you think California should stay as one state?
