Opinion: Splitting the Northwest into homogenous blocks is bad idea


Frank’s thoughts on the new proposal to re-divide Washington, Oregon. Again. This proposal comes up periodically. This time two Tri-Cities legislators have proposed to split the Northwest, according to a Feb. 11, 2015 Tri City Herald article, Section B.

So they want to split the Northwest Region into competing, homogenous states. Have they really thought this out?
