Legislative Issues Donors Page

Many, many thanks to all of our Donors for helping keep this vital part of the VBRA's work funded!

Sincere thanks to NAHB for the generous grant we received to help us delay the implementation of the Residential Building Energy Standard Code. 

VBRA is leading efforts to amend the bill to include the following provisions:

·         Appoint the Division of Fire and Safety as the “Authority Having Jurisdiction” over ALL building construction;

·         Establish a study committee to consider adopting a statewide residential building code;

·         Revise statutory requirements for homebuilder-owner agreements to include a clause acknowledging that energy code compliance is required by law;

·         Amend the statutory requirement for updating energy codes every three years by changing “shall” to “may,” and crucially;

·         Delay the adoption of 2024 RBES until its technical issues are resolved and the concerns over underlying issues of authority are at least set on a path towards resolution.
