Code Alert: Idaho, 17 January 2012


Idaho Senate is Considering Adoption of the 2011 NEC

TO: Members of the Electrical Code Coalition

The Idaho Legislature is apparently considering a proposal to adopt the 2011 NEC.

Last July, the state electrical board voted to forward a recommendation to the state legislature to adopt the 2011 NEC without amendments. This proposal has worked its way through the process and is currently with the Senate Commerce and Human Resources Committee for consideration. It is my understanding that there is some resistance within this committee regarding support for adoption. Unfortunately, this committee is meeting today at 1:30 pm MST and didn't provide advanced notice thereof.

I have advised the local IEC Chapter of this development and encourage you to do the same with your contacts in Idaho.
