SB 7000 is a committee bill filed by the Senate Community Affairs Committee. The bill requires the Florida Building Commission (FBC) to use the most recent version of the Florida Building Code as the foundation code, as opposed to the International Code Council’s International Building Code. It also makes the three year code cycle optional as opposed to mandatory. Under the bill, the FBC would meet every three years to determine whether the Code needs to be updated. HB 901 by Representative McClain was filed this week but has not received committee references.
