Mayors Want To Turn Florida Into Two States
NORTH LAUDERDALE (CBS4) ? The City of North Lauderdale is taking a tough stance on home rule, and because of this they are spearheading an effort to split Florida into two states. They have passed a resolution, asking that a boundary line to split South Florida from the rest of the state be drawn at the Palm Beach County line. They’re taking it so seriously that they want counties in South Florida, such as Miami-Dade, Broward, and Monroe to join in supporting them.
I’ll be very succinct: YES, PLEASE!
South Florida is a very different place than the rest of the state, yet we get lumped in with the rest. I say cut us loose and let’s get our own state going!
