  • LEGISLATION: In 1993, Statham introduced AB 3, which would have required the Secretary of State to submit an advisory question to the voters at the November 8, 1994 statewide general election that would ask whether the Legislature should draft a plan to divide California into three states. The bill left the Assembly on a 68-0 vote, but was killed by the Senate Rules Committee.
  • PUBLISHED: Statham is the author of Reclaim California, a 2017 book about the hundreds of attempts to make California smaller through dividing it.
