I simply meant that the federal government could very easily use federal building construction as a "foot-in-the-door". Eventually pressuring the local and state governments to adopt their code. Yes, the Tenth Amendment does make an attempt at this appear illegal. Unfortunately, its only illegal if a court of law determines that it is. The government has used many different means and methods to get around this slight bump in the road. The easiest way to get around this problem, like I previously stated, is to have the individual states ratify the code. Individual states technically reduced the speed limit back in the 70's. They were pressured by the federal government by threatening to reduce federal funding on highways. No! the federal government did not pass a 55 mph law but they sure new how to get what they wanted. -----Original Message----- From: Bill Polhemus [mailto:polhemus(--nospam--at)insync.net] Sent: Tuesday, September 14, 1999 10:13 AM To: seaint(--nospam--at)seaint.org Subject: RE: Federal building code future 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. > -----Original Message----- > From: Jeffery Seegert (x 485) [mailto:jbseegert(--nospam--at)matrixti.com] > Sent: Tuesday, September 14, 1999 8:16 AM > To: 'SEAINT' > Subject: RE: Federal building code future > > > The federal government builds hundreds of buildings every > year.
