Staff Analysis of the Legislation

Makes changes to state laws governing local building inspections of residential dwellings, including expanding current law to allow any licensed architect or licensed engineer, or a person under the direct supervisory control of a licensed architect or licensed engineer, to perform inspections under the Residential Code for One- and Two-Family Dwellings. Mandates that all local building inspection departments create a process for informal internal reviews of inspection decisions made by the department’s inspectors, along with a five-year annual reporting requirement to the Joint Legislative Committee on Local Government. Removes the requirement for a separate irrigation meter under certain circumstances involving septic tanks or other innovative on-site wastewater systems. (version 1)
