Update the Uniform Building Code 13VAC5-63

My home was built in 1959 in Springfield; a brick faced veneer rambler.  It does not have any insulation in the walls.  This home would never have been allowed in New England with such a lack of adequate insulation.   Think of all the natural gas that has been wasted during the past 50 years just becauce the builder saved a few hundred dollars.

Let's move Virginia into the 21st Century and adopt the National Building Code; it's the moral thing to do.  Time to stop wasting the natural resources that God gave us.
