Senator Terry Moulton Discusses the Recent Session, Part 2
Thursday, April 10th, 2014 -- 9:18 AM-State Senator of the 23rd District, Terry Moulton, is proud of the work done in this recent session.
Senator Moulton stopped by the station to talk about some of the bills he authored and sponsored.
One was the Uniform Commercial Code Bill.
Senator Moulton said, "Another bill, that will also help businesses, in the past we've had the uniform residential building code. We have a uniform manufactured housing code. This bill, that we got passed, is a uniform commercial building code. Architects/builders have always had problems with dealing with all the ordinances from one community to another when it comes to building projects. The problem is, usually always been, fire chiefs. But we were able to reach a compromise with the Fire Chief Association and grandfathering in current fire suppression codes and they will place them in a repository on line so that a builder or contractor can see what they are. We allowed the fire chiefs on the Building Code Council and came up with a compromise that way."
Senator Moulton said that they have made great strides in turning Wisconsin around in the last two years, but there is still more work to be done.
