It's a first step only. No State can split into other States without the consent of Congress.

Quote

The Constitution of the United States

Article IV

Section 3

1: New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.

 

This was already voted on, approved and failed in 1941.

Not saying it's a good or bad thing. Just pointing out the fact that it's going to take a lot more than an initiative in California to change anything.

If you think folks in other States would like to see California triple their number of voting Senators then maybe there is a chance?
