XII. State Plan Requirements
The 25 States and territories with their own OSHA-approved occupational
safety and health plans must revise their existing standards within six
months of the publication date of the final standards or show OSHA why there
is no need for action, e.g., because existing state standards are already "at
least as effective" as the new Federal standards. These States are:
California, Connecticut (State and local government workers only), Hawaii,
Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico,
New York (State and local government workers only), North Carolina,
Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Virgin Islands, Washington and Wyoming.
Until such time as a State standard is promulgated, Federal OSHA will provide
interim enforcement assistance, as appropriate.
