This bill, if passed, starts the process for allowing Western Minnesota Counties to vote to join the State of South Dakota, or any County to vote on joining a neighboring State.

Minnesota becomes more politically polarized every year and the metro politicians have shown us that rural Minnesotans are no longer represented by St Paul.
State lines have been relocated many times in American history because it just takes an interstate compact between two state legislatures and the approval of Congress.
If the United States were governed as a single state, we wouldn’t have the opportunity for state governance to vary according to the culture of a local area.

This means that it’s more likely to be approved by the MN Legislature. Read Newsweek's Response to the bill.
