|Subject:||Heffley - Amending PA Uniform Construction Code Act|
|I recently introduced legislation that would amend the PA Construction Code Act (Act 45 of 1999) to require that municipalities which utilize a private third-party agency to enforce the Uniform Construction Code contract with at least two or more such entities to provide inspection services. The purpose of this legislation is to ensure property owners in such municipalities have a choice of where to obtain code enforcement services.
Attached is the legislation with a few technical changes to the language of the original legislation that was circulated (HB 734).
I strongly believe this legislation is supported by the general public and will provide much needed reform to protect individual property owners from abuse.
Introduced as HB782
