A bill to revise North Carolina's residential building code to allow for a longer cycle and to prevent local governments from offering additional inspections passed the North Carolina House 99-18. The bill would extend the cycle for revising the code from three years to six years. Cities and counties also couldn't initiate regular, routine inspections on their own beyond what the code requires, unless a state council allows them. Home builders support the changes, while local governments and an environmental group oppose them.
