Tag: Building Safety Month
Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam proclaimed that May 2018 is Building Safety Month, the first U.S. governor to do so this year. Building Safety Month is an annual, global event presented by the International Code Council, its members and partners celebrating the importance of building safety, current safety codes and the role of code officials.
The International Code Council (ICC) applauded inclusion of the Federal Cost Share Reform Incentive as a provision of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, passed by the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate on Feb. 9. This provision encourages states to adopt the latest building codes, incentivizes states to invest in the resiliency of their communities, and includes additional disaster relief funds of nearly $90 billion.
