    RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — Thirteen mostly conservative California counties would break away to create a 51st state known as South California under a proposal by a local elected official.
    Republican Jeff Stone has asked fellow members of the Riverside County Board of Supervisors to support a motion to bring together officials from the 13 counties to discuss the idea. A vote is scheduled for Tuesday.
    Stone says California is too big to govern, which has led the state to raid local government coffers because of runaway spending.
    Stone's version of South California would not include Los Angeles County. Instead, it would encompass coastal Orange and San Diego counties, and inland Fresno, Imperial, Inyo, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Mono, Riverside, San Bernardino and Tulare counties. It would have a part-time Legislature and no term limits.

    I hope they will protect their borders better than the wacka-doodles in Sacremento.

    They are missing the split attempt that has been going on for years in northern calif. The State of Jefferson movement wants to take Northern Calif and Southern Oregon and make a state for the same reasons.

    I agree on Washington as long as Lewis County can be east>

    We here in sunny Florida would like the state broken along the Cross FLorida Canal, or from Orlando to Tampa - shove the southern half down to Cuba, and keep the northern half. Two different worlds......
