RE: Federal building code future

So when did they ever let that stop them?  :<)

Besides, they would probably claim such powers were allowed under Article 1,
Section 8, which reads in part:

Section 8. The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties,
imposts and excises, to
pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the
United States;  [Emphasis added]...

The 10th amendment does not cover any powers specifically granted.
