Residentail Building Code Update

Please consider strengthening the Virginia building code by including applicable higher energy and air quality standards that may be found in the International Energy Conservation Code.  The USBC does not adequately address some of the low cost measures in the IECC that would help with energy conservation, greenhouse gas emissions and long term energy cost savings for homeowners.
