A short collection of code mods from around the U.S. Language has been simplified for this post.
Receptacles with GFCI every 100 lineal feet on exterior @ ground level.

Not more than ten receptacles, single or duplex, per 15A circuit.

Not more than fifteen receptacles, single or duplex, per 20A circuit.

Only 20A rated devices on 20A circuits.

Security systems to have dedicated circuit and no GFCI.

Computer locations to have two dedicated circuits.

Ground rods to have top 4” and clamps visible.

Whole house cellular telephone systems to be on a dedicated circuit w/o GFCI.

Maximum of two GDO’s on a 20A circuit.

Satellite dishes to have separate ground rod within 5’ of dish location.

Satellite dishes to be bonded with minimum #6AWG.

RV/watercraft storage buildings to have minimum 50A 250V service or sub-service.

Some of these seem to be from very affluent areas. Anything similar in your areas?

GDO? That's a new one on me. What's the acronym for?

Interesting changes, you never know when you might need to open all six of your garage doors at the same time.
