Default Stricter RI inspections?

Hi All. Went to my usual place for state inspection today and was told that my car was too loud. It's passed twice before with the same exhaust, tune, etc. Service writer said they were cracking down on loud exhausts, people were losing their certifications, etc. Wondering if anyone else has seen the same. I got rid of my stock stuff after I passed the second time, didn't think I'd need it Not sure what to do, maybe shop a few inspection shops and hope I get someone less stringent. It was a dealership I went to (Balise), but like I said I've been fine there twice before.

Not sure about RI, but in CT the legal volume exhaust limit is around 80-85 decibels.
