Some Colorado Counties Want to Form the 51st State: North Colorado

Nope, it isn’t April Fool’s Day.  Some legislators in northern Colorado counties actually want to spin off and form their own state.  Seriously.

Laws passed this year in the Democrat-controlled Legislature enacting stricter gun control and impacting agriculture paired with attempts to expand regulation of oil and gas production…provide the tipping point, according to Sean Conway, a commissioner in Weld County, which is leading the charge to ask voters in November whether to form a new state.

Conway said citizens have tried to make their voices heard on these issues; but those voices have been flat-out ignored, which is what calls for the extreme measure of breaking off from the state.

The Coloradoan goes on to say that up to 10 rural county commissioners have already met to discuss this course of action, though Larimer County commissioners say they’re unfamiliar with the plan.
