Bill couldn’t believe there was no way to fix it, so he just moved to New York.

State related object relevant? Like a license plate? Souvenir? His home? The phrase "...known to the state of California to cause cancer"?

Was there really no way to fix it?
Did he think that moving to New York would allow him to fix it? Did moving to New York mean that he no longer had need of 'it'? Did 'it' belong to him? Was it physically broken? Not working?

Did he needed it to be fixed when he stayed in California while he didn't in New York?

Or he still wanted it to be fixed but realized that was impossible?

Did he use to stay in New York?

Was the thing still broken when he had moved to New York? Did it no longer matter that the thing was broken when he was in New York?

Is there a relevant law in New York? In the state he came from? Crime relevant?

Shot in the dark: Is it a watch that goes right for Eastern time but not for Pacific time? And it can't be changed? (Well, moving to New York because of that would be over the top, but one never knows)

Is the object smaller than a hand? a loaf of bread? a chair? a table? a car?

******* SPOILER ********
This puzzle is based on a joke. The jokes something like 'My watch is 3 hours fast and I can't fix it, so I'm moving to New York.'
Wonderful guess by Doriana!!
I will have to drum up another puzzle now
