Propsed changes to Residential Building Code

I fully support adherring to the national standards for energy efficiency and for the legislature to not "dumb down." the regulations.

I agree with Conrad Grundlehner, that  lessening those standards is a very short-sided view.

I also agree with the Roanoke Valley Cities Coalition stand that we must decrease our energy consumption and improve our environmental footprint.  Cutting corners in that goal is going to have a negative impact on our future!
