  • GREEN BUILDING STANDARD PROCESS BILL SIGNED BY GOVERNOR

    Posted: October 15, 2013 | Posted by Crystal Whitfield | No Comments

    Governor Brown has signed AB 341 (Dickinson; D-Sacramento), an industry supported measure that requires the Building Standards Commission (BSC) to integrate the existing Green Building Code (CALGreen) into the appropriate sections of the California Building Code, thereby making the code easier to understand and comply with.

    AB 341 also establishes a clearer process for allowing “non-proposing” agencies to submit suggested amendments to the Department of Housing and the Building Standards Commission. If enacted, this bill will make understanding of the “green” provisions of the building code easier to identify and comply with.  The bill will also provide state agencies, industry, local officials and the interested public with a clearer understanding of the code-submittal and adoption process.

    We thank the Governor for signing this common sense measure. Click here to read the new law – AB 341 (Dickinson).
