Three representatives in the Washington State legislature from Eastern Washington just introduced legislation to divide Washington State into two separate states. The western side of the state generally votes Democrat. The East side generally votes Republican. They want to name the East side "Liberty." They would hope Eastern Oregon would also want to join this new state as well.

The Republicans who proposed this have one West side liberal legislator joining them. He points out that the Eastern Half gets a lot of money from the Western half and they would be happy to spend it on the West Side.

None of this is likely to happen, it ups Congressional representation for the state which other states don't like.
