The Precedence was set in 1861 when West Virginia was split from Confederate Virginia as Virginia tried to secede the Union.  The process begins when a state's legislature first votes to split the state. Once the measure in the form of a resolution passes both the State Assembly and Senate it is submitted to Congress.  Both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate must vote to pass the resolution in order to split the state.  

No State has been brought into the Union who could not demonstrate their ability to self govern.  New California will demonstrate a governance system as modeled by the U.S. Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights.

County Committees will be established in all counties who would like to join the New California State Movement. These County Committees will serve as local governance centers and will be directly involved with the New California State movement activities. Representatives from each county will be selected to represent their respective counties on the Council of counties Committee. The County Committees will be instrumental in establishing local autonomy and outreach in their respective counties. County Committees will serve as the basis for a Legislature. 

Council of Counties Committee is comprised of representatives from the County Committees. The Council will be tasked to establish a Legislature, Judiciary, Executive, Declaration of Independence and Constitution for New California.  

 Established by the Council of Counties Committee the New California Legislature will be tasked with representation of their respective counties to the Legislature and will be actively engaged in all matters leading to statehood at the State of California and Federal levels. The Legislature will be established as a part time legislature.   

New California will follow a judiciary established by the New California State Constitution and will be in full compliance with United States of America Jurisprudence.   

New California will elect a Governor according to the provisions in the New California Constitution.

In order to have a viable New California Constitution the Declaration of Independence for New California must work in tandem with the New California Constitution. A day of Independence will be declared to declare our intent to separate from the State of California following the provisions of Article 4 Section 3 of the United States Constitution. The Day of Independence will be the first step to in the process necessary to establish the New California Constitutional Convention. The Declaration Process will serve as the Will of the People in New California.  

During the process of the Declaration a Constitutional Convention will be convened with the representative of Counties of New California. The New California Constitution will be consistent with the United States Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Ratification of the New California Constitution will serve as the Will of the People in New California.     


At all times representatives from New California will stand ready to work with California State representatives and Federal representatives to complete the separation process in an orderly fashion following all federal and state laws.  

New California will be the 6th largest State behind New York (bigger than Illinois and Penn),    It’s Estimated 25-27 seats in the US House of Representatives will go to New California   Old California will become the 2nd most populous state behind Texas and ahead of Florida, losing 25-27 seats in the  US House of Representatives   The 5 Southern New California counties have a population of just over 11million If they were to break away they would be a state the size of Ohio, probably larger as some other counties might join.
