In the latest episode of the NAHB podcast Housing Developments
, NAHB CEO Jerry Howard and Chief Lobbyist Jim Tobin discuss the building codes development process with guest Anne Anderson of Green Mountain Engineering, an NAHB member and a voting member of the International Codes Council.
The ICC is voting right now on the changes it will make to the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and the all-important International Residential Code (IRC). Anderson talks about the process of developing and adopting building code changes and how home builders are integral to the process. Codes can be problematic
when builders aren't involved.
NAHB Chief Economist Rob Dietz also joins the hosts to give an update on the current state of the economy and how it might impact the outcome of the 2020 elections.
