I think that if you re-read my post you will see that I did not say that you have to attend the code change hearing in order to submit a code change. *Anyone* can submit a code change in accordance with the instructions given. The situation with ICBO's Code Development Committees was that if there was no motion made at the hearing to approve the proposed code change, then the committee would not consider it, a motion would then be made to recommend disapproval. There is a big difference between *submitting* a proposed code change, and having the code development committee consider it at the hearing. Therefore, if a person is serious about having a roposed code change considered, (and I believe that most persons are) he/she must first have submitted it, and *then* be at or have someone at the hearing to move acceptance and argue for the change. I, too, naively thought that one only had to submit a proposed code change with appropriate documentation for it to be considered by the code development committees until I attended a code committee hearing. It opened my eyes! I stongly encourage anyone interested in the code change process to attend a code development committee hearing. A. Roger Turk, P.E.(Structural) Tucson, Arizona
