The 51st state may soon be called South California as proposed by Riverside County Board of Supervisors Chairman and Republican Jeff Stone, according to reports by several international news sites on Monday, July 11, 2011.

Based on the proposal, the 51st state will consists of 13 southern California counties that will break away from Golden State but will not include Los Angeles.

Stone explained in recent interviews that Los Angeles was intentionally removed from the list of counties that will comprise the 51st state. He added that the move is part of a plan to create a new conservative Californian state.

According to an issued statement, Stone said that “Los Angeles is purposely excluded because they have the same liberal policies that Sacramento does. The last thing I want to do is create a state that’s a carbon copy of what we have now.” He added that “Los Angeles just enacted a ban on plastic grocery bags. That put three or four manufacturers out of business.”

The proposal of Stone is expected to be formally laid down on Tuesday during a meeting of the Board of Supervisors.

The 51st state of South California will include Fresno, Imperial, Inyo, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Mono, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Tulare counties which has an approximate population of 13 million.

The proposed 51st state will be the fifth most populated state while Golden State may become the second-largest state after Texas.
