What specific "general notes" lead you to believe that these existing roof rurlins will NOT comply?

The General Notes give the design snow load of 38 psf. I can get the purlins to only work at Fy=50 ksi, but not at 33 ksi. New buildings in the area are designed for a minimum of 60 psf, so we are evaluating the options for upgrading the building.
The frames are of more concern, I know the purlins need to be infilled.
