The Facts on HB 2439
DOWNLOAD THE HANDOUT
Help stop governmental entities from requiring the use of vendor specific building materials
SB 1266 and HB 2439 allow a city to enact building codes with local amendments but it prohibits a city from using a building code or other local ordinance powers to mandate VENDOR driven and PRODUCT SPECIFIC MANDATES in construction, which result in the direct or indirect prohibition of other products approved by national codes and standards.
Cities and other governmental entities should not be in the business of picking winners and losers in the competitive market if the products have been approved as safe and fit for their intended use per consensus-based building codes and the installation of these products adhere to nationally adopted codes and standards for construction.
