Not necessarily. Just as an example - mandatory yearly safety inspections and emission inspections for vehicles. Florida dumped the safety inspection several decades ago, emission testing was done away with over ten years ago. My 1988 F-150 runs dual high flow exhaust with out catalytic converters, and when I retire next year the engine will get pulled, rebuilt, and will have a Holley 4 barrel carb, headers and a lumpy cam. The hot rod I could never afford.For all you guys in free states, remember as goes CA goes the nation. If the laws stand in CA they will stand nationwide.
