|Subject:||Small Home Improvement Projects Exemption from the UCC|
|I am re-introducing legislation to amend the Pennsylvania Construction Code (Act 45 of 1999) by exempting several types of common home improvement projects. This legislation would assist homeowners in upgrading their homes by removing burdensome regulations and added costs on small improvement projects. The projects on homes that would be exempt from the UCC under this legislation are as follows:
I am introducing this legislation in response to various complaints I have received from constituents regarding the over-regulation of relatively small home improvements by the building code.
This legislation was Senate Bill 436 of last session and co-sponsors were Senators Scarnati, Folmer, Vogel, Wagner, and White.
Introduced as SB372
