In construction, there are numerous regulations and codes that contractors are required by law to follow. Although different states and municipalities have variation in their regulations, there are some standard guidelines that all state and local governments require builders to abide by. Please choose a building or municipal code that you feel is outdated and elaborate on as to why, as well as provide your amendments to said code.
