The California Building Code is required to be used for more that just schools
and hospitals.  There are portions of the California Building code that are
italicized that pertain only to OSHPD and DSA.  These sections also have a
little "CA" in the margin.
However, the California Building Code also applies to any State Owned buildings,
(schools, jails, courts, etc.), and in many cases for State funded or partially
State funded projects.
The California Building Code adopts the 1994 UBC, and then has amendments in the
form of the green pages.  For the most part, the 1994 UBC and the 1995 CBC are
the same.  For OSHPD and DSA, the difference are greater, but still, only by
amendment to the 1994 UBC.
