Not true, CA has NOT set a tone everywhere. That's complete non sense and not the truth to say the least!
Open your eyes, man.
CA policy usually occurs in at least 50% of the US states within 5 years.
EPA restrictions for vehicles and industrial manf. started in Maryland, and jumped to northern CA in the 70's and is now nation wide
Unfortunately, Haliburton lobbied to remove most restrictions, and Cheney made sure it was completely removed when he was in the cabinet...for the oil industry ONLY.
CARB pollution limits for manufacturing are now nearly nation wide (california air resources board)
That's why we don't make furniture, cars, or anything else with a sprayed on oil finish in this country.
DOT standards started in Detroit, then were forced in CA, and now Nationwide
OHV riding restrictions started in CA, are now adpoted in several states since 1995
Lemon law started in CA and is now enforceable nation wide
Jarvis-Hunt property tax reform started in CA, and now is in 25 states
The CSLB (california state license board) is now the country standard for monitoring contractor's licenses and insurance
....that's just the stuff I could think of without resorting to Google....
It can't argue ' that's nonsense' without proving your position.....
