Conway told KDVR that the counties were making the move because the state legislature was not listening to the voices of rural counties when it came to gun control and expanded fossil fuel production.
Even if the counties vote to secede, the state legislature, the governor and the U.S. Congress would all have to approve the plan to create a new state. In 1863, West Virginia became the last state to successfully secede by breaking away from Virginia to form a separate state.
Critics of the ballot initiative have mocked the plan by suggesting that the new state could be called “Fracktopia.”
