The United States Department of Agriculture has approved the establishment of a new state to hold the California men’s population.
The decision is a key milestone in the country’s effort to hold on to its aging population.
California was the last state to adopt a population cap of 2.5 million people.
It was one of only a handful of states to do so, but its use was widely criticized.
“We believe the United States population growth trend is irreversible and the nation cannot afford to lose any more than 1.4 million people in the next decade,” U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said in a statement.
“We are confident that the proposed state will be able to support its residents with the resources and support necessary to keep pace with the growth.”
California will be a state with no residents in 2020, but that could change as the state seeks to add about 200,000 new residents over the next 20 years.
The new state will include California cities, towns and cities with populations between 100,000 and 250,000, and will be administered by the U.A.E.
The proposed state has already received the blessing of Governor Jerry Brown.
The governor said he plans to sign a proclamation declaring the state a new U.T.C.B. for the first time in 50 years.
