How ironic! The exemptions are withdrawn at hearings in a state that won't even let us adopt the provisions requiring sprinklers!

Maybe the Home Builders Associations didn't have enough time to replace all their opponets like they have in Pennsylvania's Construction Code Review and Advisory Committee. They also seem to have enough political clout in the PA legislature and with the Governor to get what they want. Oh wait, maybe there are members that can't be swayed by deep pockets. Let's hope they can never buy enough votes at the ICC.
