The state Assembly passed a bill Tuesday that would have an advisory council review the state’s uniform dwelling code once every three years and produce a report on that review once every six years.
Assembly Bill 77 would have the state’s Dwelling Code Council review the uniform-dwelling code, which applies to the construction of one- and two-family homes, once every three years instead of once every two, as is now the requirement. The reports the council would have to produce once every six years would be sent to the Department of Safety and Professional Services, which enforces the dwelling code, and the department would be required to assist in putting together the reports.
The first report would have to be completed within a year of the bill being passed. For the proposal to become law, it must be passed by the Senate and signed by the governor.
