State and federal business regulations are often very similar and cover the same things. However, federal regulations tend to create a minimum threshold, such as the minimum wage standard. It’s then up to the states to expand upon those regulations if they wish. Using the same example, California’s minimum wage is higher than the federal minimum wage.
