150 semester hour requirement to sit for CPA exam?

Why did most states apply the 150 semester hour requirement to sit for CPA exam while some did not? Will California apply this requirement soon or later? If California applies this requirement later on, will
current California CPAs with only 120 semester hours need to go back to school and get additional 30 semester hours to keep their license? Thanks in advance

That is a question of politics. You will have to ask people who were closer to the action.

California is a dual track state. You should carefully review California's unique rules at the State Board of Accountancy's web site.
And no, we who were licensed before the new rules took effect do not have to go back to school to keep our audit licenses.
You really should go to the SBA site and read the California Accountancy Act and the SBA rules.
