According to ABC 7, San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors voted last night to put a measure on the November 2022 ballot where voters can decided on whether they want their county to be seceded from California. People at the board meeting have said that they are missing out on revenue that the county deserves.
"Our judges are constantly taxed with too much, with not enough resources," Burum said during the public comment section of the Board of Supervisors meeting last month. "The state of California continues to allocate resources to the high-cost areas to our detriment and other Inland Valley communities. It's time to stop it. It's time for our citizens to stand up and say, 'Enough is enough.'"
San Bernardino County has almost 2.2 million people and if it does become its own state then it would be more populous than 15 other states in the United States. Also, if voters approve the secession then the State Legislature and U.S. Congress will still need to approve it. Head to ABC 7 for more.
