California has also talked about 3 new states. But that won't happen either, I'd guess.
Puerto Rico has been trying torever I think. Then you have the crazies in my state who want to break it into two states. I'd put the chances at about 5% we ever have another state. The Washington DC people are lunatics as well. They are never going to be a state.
New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.
The Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to Prejudice any Claims of the United States, or of any particular State.
Does anybody here believe that, at some point in the future, we will add another state to the United States? If so, where and how?
Yeah, that isn't happening. We don't need any more states.
