Pack Rat Roger Turk found the proposed change in SEAOC's submittal for a 
change to the 1994 UBC in which a massive rewrite of a large part of Chapter 
16 was proposed.  This was part of code change item 177 published in the 
Nov-Dec, 1995 Building Standards, Part III, page 117.  Proponent was 
SEAOC/Code, Contact:  James R. Johnson, J. R. Johnson Associates, 2211 
Hacienda Blvd., Ste. 215, Hacienda Heights, CA  91745.

Hope this points you in the right directions, Barry.
