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? Perhaps you ponder why local jurisdictions don’t design a more efficient Residential Energy Code or require toilets that use less water?

In 2019 you will have the opportunity to propose amendments to the 2018 Washington State Codes, including the Residential Code and residential portion of the Energy Code. This session will highlight how the State Building Code Council conducts its process and how to submit an amendment proposal. We will also discuss some state legislative bill concepts related to the residential energy code and water use that will likely be introduced in the 2019 legislative session. Learn how you can get involved in all of these issues!
