Lege: Gil Pinac introduces statewide building code.

Commerce Committee Chairman Gil Pinac's bill would have the state immediately adopt the wind and flood provisions of the International Building Code and the International Residential Code for areas now under an emergency declaration because of the hurricanes. Within six months, the state - through a new council appointed by the governor - would adopt both the IBC and IRC as its own with some modification.
Probably a good idea, but conditions are not the same in New Orleans as they are in Shreveport.
