Would require CA legislative consent

Per Article IV they could split up the state with consent of the CA legislature. And if Jefferson wanted to incorporate part of WA then they would require their legislative consent aswell.

Article IV Section 3 Clause 1:
"New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new States 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."
