No New States?

| | Comments (0)

It's been almost 50 years since we've had a new state.

We are, as of a few years ago, in the longest period of time without a new state entering the Union. From Arizona's entrance in 1912 to Alaska's in 1959 was just under 47 years. The last state to enter was Hawaii, also in 1959.

Will we ever have a new state?
