Bill Summary: This measure adopts the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code as the statewide minimum code for residential building construction within Mississippi. Residential Building is defined as any privately owned, non-commercial building or structure that includes provisions for a heating or cooling system, or for a hot water system. Outdated pool and spa provisions exist in the 2009 IECC; including an unenforceable requirement for portable spas to have covers of an R-12 insulation value.  APSP will reach out to the bill sponsor for consideration of adoption of APSP-14 for portable spas and APSP-15 for residential pools and in-ground spas. 

 

Status: Passed the House Energy Committee as amended on January 29. Amended text is not yet available. Failed upon adjournment.
