Fighting to Bring Utah's Building Codes Up-to-Date

Feb 8, 2012

One state lawmaker’s attempt to bring Utah's residential building codes up to date hasn’t been assigned a committee hearing, despite widespread support from local governments, businesses and residents. Republican Representative Fred Cox says adopting the latest building codes for new homes is important for public safety and energy cost savings, but as KCPW's Whittney Evans reports, at least one organization is fighting the change, saying it would cost homeowners too much.
