Jason and Ben, thanks, that's exactly it.
For flexure members ACI 318-10.5.3 says min. steel is not required if the As is at least 1/3 greater than required. I would assume the footing is being treated as a flexural member therefore it would be ok. Not sure if this section has been removed by IBC.
In the UBC, you could avoid minimum steel in footings if you provided 1/3rd more than required for strength.
In the new code, I think that's been stricken and you must at least comply with temp steel requirements but not per ACI 318 section 10.5.4 & You do not have to meet ACD 10.5.1 for min flex steel.
Is that the case? It's been a while since I went diving thru an ACI (college) so maybe I'm missing something.
