I mean, really? (PDF) Even California doesn't do this shit

Are they really allowed to ban brake fluid that meets FMVSS 116? I thought if it met the federal standards then it is allowed nationwide (with the exception of California emissions, of course).

It's a good thing I don't live down there because the Wagner Severe Duty I use isn't on the list, even though this DOT 5.1 does meet the FMVSS 116 standards. I bought mine on Amazon, but you can also get it at O'Reilly (none over here though, but there are plenty of O'Reillys in Florida). Wagner also makes regular DOT 3 and 4 brake fluids that are not on that list but available from the above stores/sites.
