TWO STATES. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Provides for a separation of California into two states, North California and South California, and describes boundaries of the two new states. Provides the Peripheral Canal shall not be within the physical boundaries of North California, nor of the single state of California if Congress or any other entity fails to follow through on the two-state provisions. Provides the California State Legislature shall guarantee the sanctity and rights of existing agreements and contracts, unless otherwise prohibited by the act. Provides the Legislature shall take the necessary actions to implement the act. Fiscal impact on state or local governments: The fiscal implications of separating California into two states are impossible to estimate and would depend on the requirements of future implementing legislation. The initial costs of setting up two governmental operations are likely to be substantial and exceed any savings.
