Yes but after you pass indio there's pretty much no Population at all.Dallas to Houston there's population but far from each other.I Drove from Houston to Dallas before and i noticed there would be a city with some population and then driving another 5-7 miles even 10 miles before i see another city. ( There was nothing but open land between the 5 miles) there would be more cities with more population. I Though that was kinda sprwaled but what the hell texas and Cali are pretty sprwaled to me . Its like driving for six flags throw the boring central valley (Which is kinda boring and there's not much pop either ) to the State Capital. That spwraled stuff im talking about the LA Metro is being the smallest out of the big three NY and Chicago and people from Ny and Chi saying our metro is sprwaled when there metro is almost twice the size of La's so what he hell. and finally The Rain is coming to the SouthLand.

Well yeah, NYC and Chicago are also very sprawled out as well, but i was referring to the part about "room to expand all the way to the Arizona border" which would be a lot of sprawl.

Ok but that would be a new civilization or probably a new metropolitan area then b/c thats way the hell far from the I.E. but if California needs more development it would be all that 100's of miles near the Az Border where a new Major city could be. But that would be sprwaled.That whole area could add about 4 million people if that area near the AZ Border had any development. It's flat and almost 200 miles of bull spit.

Texas may have a larger population than California after a few years. Right now the unemployment rate in California is getter higher, but Texas has jobs. That'll send people there (Texas) in a hurry. Plus Texas homes cost less. Plus it's warm in most of Texas. Yep I can see that happening.

If it does it'll be the very far future, like 60 years.

I wish Texas could have passed it right now. If my state hadn't grown beyond 20-25 million it would be the beautiful, near-paradise I remember when I was a teenager back in the mid to late 70s.

Edit: oops - sorry guys, did a "necro" thread.

It will be a long, long, long time.

Texas may be growing at a faster rate, but it grew only slightly more in numbers and ist still 13 million away from reaching Cali's population.
