To date, 48 states have adopted the NAD 83 legislation however, for various reasons, only 33 included a specific definition of the relationship between meters and feet.

Abstract

    In 1991, NGS adopted a policy that defines the conditions under 
which NAD 83 State Plane Coordinates (SPCs) would be published in feet 
in addition to meters. As outlined in that policy, each state or 
territory must adopt NAD 83 legislation (typically referenced as Codes, 
Laws or Statutes), which specifically defines a conversion to either 
U.S. Survey or International Feet as defined by the U.S. Bureau of 
Standards in Federal Register Notice 59-5442. To date, 48 states have 
adopted the NAD 83 legislation however, for various reasons, only 33 
included a specific definition of the relationship between meters and 
feet. This lack of uniformity has led to confusion and misuse of SPCs 
as provided in various NGS products, services and tools, and created 
errors in mapping, charting and surveying programs in numerous states 
due to inconsistent coordinate conversions.
