Subject: Legislation to Exempt Roadside Stands from UCC
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that will exempt roadside produce stands from the Uniform Construction Code (UCC). I am introducing this legislation in response to several complaints I have received from farmers in my district who were told by the local code enforcement officers that their roadside produce stands must be compliant with the UCC. I believe that requiring these stands to be subject to the UCC is ridiculous, and serves no public safety purpose.

My legislation is drafted in a manner that exempts only those stands which are involved in the direct seasonal sale of a farm's products. It is also based on standards that other states use for similar exemptions.

Please consider cosponsoring this important legislation.

Introduced as HB1642
