Code Green: Get Involved in Your Codes and Laws

Do you feel our building codes could be more strategic with respect to climate concerns? Could your vast experience and knowledge help fix the errors and inefficiencies across our codes—making green building easier for everyone?

This session will first discuss how the State Building Code Council conducts its process and how to submit an amendment proposal. In 2019, anyone can submit a proposal to amend Washington’s 2018 Residential Code, including the small residential portion of the Energy Code, so get ready and learn how!

This session will also discuss how your involvement in the state legislature can really make a difference. We will discuss some state legislative bill concepts related to the residential energy code that may be introduced in the 2019 legislative session, and things you can do to provide input on potential bills. Learn how you can get involved in all of these issues!
