RE: Federal building code future

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I don't really care about the issue of Federal buildings per se. If they
want to implement their own (more stringent) building code for construction
of their buildings, let them, by all means.

By "Federal Building Code," I was assuming a code adopted by the federal
government which localities would then be compelled to use. Such an attempt
would be illegal, per the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. constitution.

If I misunderstood, I apologize.
