Listed herein are bills of current interest to Building Departments. State legislative law and bill information can be found at the legislature's website at http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/.

SB 183
, introduced on February 17, 2009, became law on May 7, 2010, as Chapter 19 of the 2010 Statutes. It was amended seven times during the legislative process. The bill adds new provisions to the Health and Safety Code requiring State Fire Marshal certified carbon monoxide detection devices in existing single family dwellings on or before July 1, 2011, and all other existing dwelling units (including rentals) on or before January 1, 2013. These new provisions are located in Division 13, Part 1.5, of the Health and Safety Code, known as the State Housing Law. Thus enforcement is the responsibility of the local building department. See this bill for additional detail.

AB 1693, introduced on January 28, 2010, proposes to amend the California Building Standards Law in the Health and Safety Code to eliminate the requirement for annual code adoption cycles by the Building Standards Commission. The bill proposes one code adoption cycle at an 18 month interval for supplements to an existing edition of the code in Title 24, California Code of Regulations.

AB 1964, introduced on February 17, 2010, proposes to extend the mobilehome park inspections mandated by Health and Safety Code Section 18400 et seq, to January 1, 2019. The inspection requirements are now scheduled to sunset on January 1, 2012. SB 951 proposes a similar extension of the mobilehome park inspections.

AB 1975, as amended on June 16, 2010, proposes to add provisions to the Health and Safety Code requiring plans for buildings with multiple dwelling units to show a water meter or submeter, as a condition of permit issuance on and after January 1, 2013. The Department of Housing and Community Development will be required to develop building standards for the water meter and submeter installation.

AB 2472 has been amended twice since its introduction on February 19, 2010. The bill now proposes to amend the Health and Safety Code to allow Marin County to develop a pilot program for green innovation building permits to promote environmentally sustainable building materials, methods, and designs not yet addressed in the state’s building codes.

AB 2516 has been substantially amended since its introduction last February. This bill now proposes to add new provisions to the Health and Safety Code requiring the Department of Housing and Community Development to establish an Accessible Housing Task Force with members from specified agencies and organizations. The Task Force is to explore specified matters of housing accessibility and report to the Legislature by June 30, 2012.

AB 2762, as amended on June 22, 2010, proposes to amend the Health and Safety Code portion known as the California Building Standards Law. The bill would authorize the Building Standards Commission to accept grants and gifts of funds to carry out mandated activities. This bill includes other proposals and several cleanup type amendments.

SB 518, introduced on February 26, 2009, has now been amended eight times. It now proposes to require the Buildings Standards Commission to adopt building standards for the
construction, installation, and alteration of graywater systems for indoor and outdoor uses in nonresidential occupancies, in accordance with prescribed requirements. The bill would terminate the authority of the Department of Water Resources to adopt such standards for graywater systems.

The following bills are worthy of watching because of the subject matter. Amendments are possible and that may increase the impact on building departments: SB 1227, AB 433, AB 880, AB 828, AB 1001, AB 2001, AB 2373 and AB2701.

AB 1693 proposes to amend the California Building Standards Law in the Health and Safety Code to eliminate the requirement for an annual code adoption cycle to occur between the triennial cycle that coincides with the publication of new model code editions. The bill will require on code adoption cycle for supplements to an existing edition of the code in Title 24, California Code of Regulations, instead of two annual cycles.

AB 1904 proposes to extend the mobilehome park inspections mandated by Health and Safety Code Section 18400 et seq, to January 1, 2019. The inspection requirements are now scheduled to sunset on January 1, 2012. Senate Bill 951 proposes a similar extension of the mobilehome park inspections.

AB2472 proposes to amend the Health and Safety Code to allow a city, county, or city and county to adopt an experimental program that exempts buildings from the building standards in Title 24 in order to facilitate innovative sustainable building materials, methods and designs.

AB2516 proposes to amend Section 12955.1 of the Health and Safety Code to required accessibility requirements in multistory dwelling units located within ½ mile of transit stations.

SB183, amended six times during 20-089, proposes to amend the Health and Safety Code to require State Fire Marshal certified carbon monoxide detection devices in existing single-family dwellings on or before January 1, 2011, and all other existing dwelling units on or before July 1, 2010. Given the requirement of Section R315 of the 2010 California Residential Code for Carbon Monoxide Alarms in dwellings on and after January 1, 2010, this bill will most likely be amended again.

The following bills are worthy of watching because of the subject matter. Amendments are possible and that may increase the impact on building departments: SB 1227, AB1001, AB 880, AB828, AB 433, AB 2001, and AB 2373.
