     The hearings for the proposed changes to the IBC working draft are at 
     the end of April 1998. They are in Washington D.C. There will be 
     available a monograph of the proposed changes in mid March. I will try 
     to post a message when it comes in.
     
     If you are not able to be present at the hearings to testify regarding 
     your proposals; the code development committee will vote based on what 
     is present in the written monograph. The assembly (code officials) may 
     overturn the action of the committee by a vote from the floor. If the 
     assembly does not act the recommendation of the committee will be 
     included in the final draft of the IBC. 
     
     The final draft of the IBC should be available this year (summer 
     1998?). 
     
     The monograph (part III of the Building Standards magazine) only 
     contains proposed changes to published codes. This would include the 
     International Plumbing Code, International Mechanical Code, 
     International Zoning Code etc. but does not include any codes which 
     are still in a working draft stage (such as the International Building 
     Code) 
     
     Thanks for your interest
