HISTORIC VOTE APPROVES USE OF PEX PLASTIC PIPE

August 20, 2010

The Building Standards Commission (BSC) on Monday unanimously adopted emergency regulations allowing the use of PEX Plastic Pipe on a statewide basis.

Secretary Bill Leonard, who also serves as BSC chairman, indicated his support for this historic vote that appears to bring to an end to this legal and administrative battle that started in 1982.

Unlike previous votes on plastic pipe, this latest vote ratified a legal settlement agreed to by the litigants, including the State Pipe Trades Council.

It is anticipated that the BSC staff will issue a formal notice later this week which details this action. CBPA will post the notice once it becomes available to the public.
