It's that idiotic "state of Jefferson" crap again.
More about this nitwittery is here:
If the county were to split from the state, any action taken today would be the first step in a long process that would require approval from the state Legislature and the U.S. Congress.
Siskiyou County would also invite other neighboring counties in California and southern Oregon to join in the effort to create a new state.
The U.S. Constitution allows for the formation of new states, though land can’t be taken from existing states without the consent of state and federal governments.
Which means this stupid proposal will NEVER, EVER be approved.
