Remember that whole thing with the proposal to split California into three states? That hit a snag today…a big snag.

Buzzfeed News reports, “Californians will not be asked in November whether to divide the Golden State into three new states after a court on Wednesday blocked the controversial proposal from the ballot.

The California Supreme Court ordered the secretary of state not to place Proposition 9, also known as Cal 3, on the Nov. 6 ballot in response to a legal challenge filed against the measure last week.

“Because significant questions have been raised regarding the proposition’s validity, and because we conclude that the potential harm in permitting the measure to remain on the ballot outweighs the potential harm in delaying the proposition to a future election, respondent Alex Padilla, as Secretary of State of the State of California, is directed to refrain from placing Proposition 9 on the November 6, 2018, ballot,” the court said.”
