Re: The Steel Committee of California

The committee you're referring to is the Structural Steel Educational
Council and we are still alive and kicking.  We have had many discussions on
whether to update the publication you referenced but we wanted to wait until
SAC finished their work.  Now that SAC is finished---it's time to get to
