SUMMARY AS PASSED HOUSE: (all summaries)

Uniform Statewide Building Code; enforcement by local building departments. Requires any fees that are levied by a local governing body in order to defray the cost of Building Code enforcement and appeals be used only to support the functions of the local building department. The bill also requires local building departments, when denying an application for the issuance of a building permit, to provide to the applicant a written explanation detailing the reasons for which the application was denied. The bill provides that the applicant may submit a revised application addressing the reasons for which the application was previously denied and that, if the applicant does so, the local building department shall be encouraged, but not required, to limit its review of the revised application to only those portions of the application that were previously deemed inadequate and that the applicant has revised.
