Following the West Virginia statehood model of 1861 New California State is the first effort to form a new state utilizing the state split clause, Article IV, Section 3 since 1861. California alone has attempted over 200 state splits since 1849 yet not one has followed the U.S. Constitution’s state split clause. New California State is following the Constitution as designed by the Founding Fathers and utilizes the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights as their tools in the “originalist” constitutionalist model.
New California State has read over 120 Grievances against the state of California over 121 weeks as part of the January 15, 2018 Declaration of Independence process.
