State Operations

split New York into two states

I suggest you file for insolvency then split the state into two states with New York City being a state unto itself an the rest to revert back to the original name of New Amsterdam making it the 51st state.

    i agree accept one thing, we should still be new york. why should we have to change our name just because we are unlucky enough to have NYC in our budget?

    I think we should draw the line so that NYC gets to keep their pet Albany.

    well nyc has their own set of tax laws and they have their own set of pay rates they already consider themselves special anyway. if you have a nys pistol license, its not good in nyc, you have to apply for a nyc pistol permit. we should one new york and stop this segregation of upstate and down. new your is new york.
