Hawaii Legislative Updates

AIA Hawaii State Council Legislative Report

By Dan Chun, AIAHSC Government Affairs Commission.
For full text of the bills go to

AIA Hawaii State Council 's top priority is having state funds released to update our aged building code based on IBC 2006 - published eleven years ago. Two bills have passed. AIAHSC prefers HB1436.

In many past years the legislature funded update efforts only to have the governor decline to release the appropriations. Governor Ige has a bad record as his predecessors, demonstrating his lack of support for state building codes.
