Green Building Code Passes

New, 6 comments

Yesterday, the California Building Standards Commission adopted new green building rules, a contentious new code that the San Francisco Chronicle calls the "most stringent, environmentally friendly building code standards of any state in the nation." Even though cities like Los Angeles can still enforce tougher, existing standards, groups like the nonprofit U.S. Green Building Council oppose the new system because they believe it'll just result in "confusion for builders, local governments and the public."
