Subject: SLS: How to start a new govt.

A new state can be formed, but only
with permission of Congress, pursuant
to its duty under the Guarantee Clause.

See also Article IV, Section 3, Clause 1 ("4:3:1"),
for the specific authority to create new states.

If part of an existing state is involved,
then the Legislature of that state must also
give consent.

The U.S. Constitution can only be amended
pursuant to Article V.
