Yes. from Wikipedia:
"The states that have adopted the California standards are: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico (2011 model year), New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington, as well as the District of Columbia
. Such states are frequently referred to as "CARB states" in automotive discussions because the regulations are defined by the California Air Resources Board."
