Re: UBC1994vsASCE 7-95

Alex:

Here in Boise, Idaho the building department will be adopting the 1997 UBC
in its entirety starting September 1.  We have been using the 97 code for
about the last 6 months.

However, it is my understanding that not all jurisdictions will be adopting
this new code and will continue to use the 94 UBC.

Personally, I'm not familiar with the ASCE 7-95.
