The movement to start a new state in Northern California is coming to Grass Valley Saturday. Weldon Travis of Rough and Ready says local supporters of the movement to form the State of Jefferson will be on the streets midday.
Members will be passing out literature about the reasons for forming a 51st state.
The movement to form the new state says benefits include local control of resources, and better representation at the federal level.
According to Travis the committee support in the formation of the State of Jefferson is scheduled to present to the Board of Supervisors at their regular meeting the second Tuesday in May.
