 HB 224 - STATE PLUMBING CODE                                                
 CHAIRMAN KOTT asked that the subcommittee chairman,                           
 Representative Rokeberg, give an overview of the single wall                  
 exchanger and the rewrite of the plumbing code relating to HB                 
 REPRESENTATIVE NORMAN ROKEBERG explained the subcommittee is in               
 the process of redrafting a committee substitute (CS) or an                   
 amendment to HB 224 to accommodate the adoption of the 1991                   
 plumbing code.  He noted it has not been amended since the early              
 70s.  The bill turned over responsibility of code adoption and                
 regulation to the Department of Labor (DOL).  As part of the CS,              
 the subcommittee will be asking that an exception be made for the             
 single wall heat exchangers.  He noted they are also going to                 
 adopt a two year sunset provision on Wednesday, if that is the                
 will of the committee.  The documentation and testimony should be             
 ready for the committee meeting on Wednesday.                                 
 REPRESENTATIVE KOTT said the measure will be discharged from the              
 subcommittee back to the committee for consideration of the CS.               
 He requested that a teleconference be set up as well.
