A billionaire tech investor says he has enough backing to put on the ballot a plan to split California into six states.
Timothy Draper, a venture capitalist that has invested in such tech companies as Twitter, HotMail, Skype and Tesla, says he has the 808,000 signatures needed on a petition to force the measure onto a public referendum in November 2016.
Draper’s group says the division would create a more business-friendly environment, solve the state’s water issues and ease traffic congestion.
Shanna Malcolm and Jimmy Dore join Dave to discuss whether or not dividing up California would be a good idea – and if there’s a chance of it actually happening. What are your thoughts on this story? Comment below and share!
