Existing law requires the California Building Standards Commission to codify all building standards of adopting agencies or state agencies that propose the building standards and statutes defining building standards into one California Building Standards Code. Existing law requires the commission to publish, or cause to be published, editions of the building standards code in its entirety once every 3 years.
This bill would require the commission, in conjunction with the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development, to adopt emergency regulations to repeal a specific portion of the 2013 Triennial Edition of the Building Standards Code, and would prohibit the commission from adopting building code standards that establish construction requirements for primary care clinics that provide medication or aspiration abortion services that differ from construction standards applicable to other specified primary care clinics.
Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes. State-mandated local program: no.
