Three Californias?! You heard that right.

Draper says CAL 3 will deliver the 600,000 signatures to the secretary of state next week and the signatures will then have to be vetted and approved.

"This is an unprecedented show of support on behalf of every corner of California to create three state governments that emphasize representation, responsiveness, reliability and regional identity", Draper said.

But Draper's dream is still getting some spotlight on social media.

CNN reached out to Secretary of State Alex Padilla, but he refused to comment until he receives the signatures.

Draper, who had a hand in investing in the early stages of Tesla and Skype, backed a 2014 proposal to turn the Golden State into six states.

Southern California would have 12 counties where the median income would be 45,000 dollars.

Russian Federation seeks to discuss spy poisoning with UK
In a statement on its website, the embassy said that its dealings with Britain over the issue had been "utterly unsatisfactory". She said she had found the incident "disorientating", without providing any further details on the attack.

Any thought to share on CAL 3?

Northern California: This would include the Bay Area and the 31 remaining counties north of Sacramento.

A new California, the smallest in size, would consist of the current state's central coast and Los Angeles with a median income of 53,000 dollars.

Even if the initiative makes the ballot and Californians vote to split the state, Congress would still need to vote on the change.

"I think that these three new states are going to empower people to realize what's possible in government", Draper said.

Supporters say the state has grown too huge to satisfy the needs of Californians.

Draper argues CAL 3 would solve many of California's most pressing issues, including the state's failing school systems, highest-in-the-nation taxes, deteriorating infrastructure and strained government, by allowing regional communities to make decisions for their citizens.

The initiative proposed by billionaire venture capitalist Timothy Draper seeks to carve up the state into Northern California, Southern California and a new California. Most recently, there was talk of splitting the state into two pieces.
