Note that th same law gives the AMA complete immunuty from the FAA.

Expect AMA dues to triple within the year and the AMA to start having non-members arrested and forced to join.

I predict that the cost of compliance is going to be set so high that unless you are already making a packet from selling your toys to the military you will not be able to meet the operational criteria to sell or operate in the NAS.
