Here is my list and other changes if I had my way

Herbie's US Map

I saw an article about changing the map of the United States to have only 38 states. It got me to thinking, since school is out and waiting on the “decision”, I would make a few changes to the United States map that make sense, at least in my head.

  1. Combine the Dakotas and allow 4 senators for 6 yrs. then down to 2.
  2. Split California into 2 states @ Kern, San Luis Obispo, San Bernardino counties southward.
  3. Create the state of Columbia/Anacostia/Georgetown/etc. that covers the DC, Prince Georges, Montgomery Counties in Maryland, and independent cities of Arlington and Alexandria, counties of Fairfax, Loudon, and Stafford in Virginia.
  4. Combine Wyoming and Montana and allow 4 senators for 6 yrs. then down to 2.
  5. Escambia, Santa Rosa, and Okaloosa Florida counties move to Alabama.
  6. El Paso and Hudspeth counties Texas move to New Mexico and Mountain Time Zone.
  7. Lake and Porter counties Indiana move to Illinois.
  8. Place Alabama and Middle Tennessee in the Eastern Time Zone.
  9. Separate New York City, Long Island, and Westchester County from the rest of New York for its own state.
  10. Combine Connecticut and Rhode Island and allow 4 senators for 6 yrs. then down to 2.

When all is said and done, I still have 50 states.
