Chuck - Who?s really running the show with wood seismic provisions in the 2000
IBC? I had the impression that they would be based on the 1997 NEHRP
Provisions which are 99% balloted and resolved. Perhaps SEAOC?s current
reluctance stems from the fact that its not possible to change the NEHRP
Provisions? 
Was SEAOCC able to convey its negatives on the NEHRP Provisions ballot over
the summer and did you prevail back then? 

There are also many other stakeholders than just SEAOC involved in the IBC now
that the draft is published. You ought to consider submitting your own
personal code change proposal to ICC just to be safe.
