New California State is based on the rural areas of California becoming New California. The map as it stands now is representative of the active county committees who are involved in New California. When we release the final map there will be contiguous borders for both New California State and California. What it will reveal are two states with populations that are near equal but based on rural vs urban populations.
New California will NOT include the most densely populated areas of California. As an example the most densely populated area of Santa Clara County will not be a part of New California. The same with Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Sacramento, Los Angles and Ventura. These counties carry the designation on the map as "Rural" because their large urban areas would throw off the rural population density of New California we attempting to achieve in order to attain real representation by our New California elected public servants. Note the assembly district map of California to see the heavy concentration of Assembly Members in the Los Angeles county area that will not be a part of New California State.
When you look a closer look at both the federal and state numbers of representatives the lack of representation for rural California becomes even more evident. Here are the numbers of representatives for California both federal and state for 2017-2018.
