2016-11-11 ICC 2016 Group B Guide for OGCV for the 2018 I-Codes

The Los Angeles Basin Chapter Administration Committee – Code Coordination Effort Committee (“LABC-A Committee”) has been working closely with various CA governmental members that represent participating CA chapters, organizations and jurisdictions engaged in the code development process to evaluate and recommend positions on select code change proposals. With that effort now complete, the LABC-A Committee is recommending to all CA Governmental Member Voting Representatives (“GMVR”) to support the CA consensus recommended positions pertaining to select code change proposals that were individually considered and received a final action during the International Code Council (“ICC”) Public Comment Hearings held on October 19-25 of 2016 in Kansas City, MO.

The document linked below consolidates and summarizes the recommended voting actions by the various participating CA chapters, organizations and jurisdictions to ensure ease of comparison and review for other CA governmental members. The LABC-A Committee hopes that this document will help to serve as a guide for all CA GMVR when evaluating what code change proposals to vote for online.
