SB 1518, which originally sought to add the reach code to the state building code and allow local jurisdictions to adopt the reach code as a mandate, was amended prior to passage to create the Resilient Efficient Buildings Task Force. OHBA and others, concerned about creating a patchwork of building codes across the state, lobbied for the change as well as for industry representation on the subsequent task force. The taskforce has 27 seats with the representation of each seat spelled out in the legislation, including the seats designated for residential construction. HBA worked with OHBA to find industry representatives and allies to fill the seats reserved for industry and other seats where appropriate. The first meeting of the taskforce, where organizational discussions and initial overviews took place, occurred on April 5, 2022.
