Do you need this in California for some reason?

I've had a C corp. based in Ohio for years and just had it registered as 
a "foreign corporation" in Virginia.  As far as I know, I don't have to 
do anything with Ohio since I don't do business there.  Virginia has a 
yearly registration fee, but Ohio didn't.
