Issues in Action

The final public hearing on Group 1 codes (IBC, IFC, WSEC-Commercial) will be this Friday, in virtual format, from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.

If you feel inclined to join the opposition to restricting natural gas in multi-family buildings that are built under the IBC, please consider signing up to testify and/or submitting written testimony.

*Any written or oral comments made in Fall of 2021 is not part of the public record in relation to the Group 1 Code adoption process. If you’d like that to be part of the public record, please re-submit or sign-up to provide testimony.
