Building Code revision

I am writing to request that any revisions to the residential building code strengthen--not loosen--requirements for energy efficient siting, materials and construction, so that housing helps Virginia meet its goals for conserving energy and mitigating climate change.  Home buyers will benefit since energy-efficient housing will reduce operating costs and so save them money.  Thank you for this opportunity to comment.
