Frank-

You have an excellent memory.  I do indeed remember your question and 
the somewhat pregnant pause that followed prior to a response.  In 
defense, if I need one, I must admit until the current E-mail 
message, I never fully appreciated, or understood the reason why you 
believed the AISC Seismic publication should have been referenced.

Providing "defense materials" for engineers involved in litigation is 
not really within the scope of SAC's charter or contract with FEMA.  
Nevertheless, I personally am sympathetic to any fellow practitioner 
who finds himself under fire for having complied with the prevailing 
standard of practice.

I will see that the SAC Project Management Committtee discuss your 
latest request at our next meeting, and provide back a response.

Regards
Ronald O. Hamburger
Project Director for Product Development
