Springfield Tells State Building Code Enforcement To "Stuff It"

The City of Springfield is telling the state to "go stuff it" when it comes to enforcing building codes for energy conservation. That's after aldermen passed an ordinance that guts the capital city's energy conservation enforcement measures.


Corporation Counsel Mark Cullen says that contractors must abide by state law that says new construction must comply with the latest published International Energy Conservation Code. Alderman Frank Edwards says the ordinance means the State of Illinois, not the City of Springfield, will have to pay for inspectors to enforce the codes.


Not everyone was on board with the measure. Alderman Gail Simpson says it sends a bad message to residents that the city will use a loophole to get around enforcing the energy conservation codes.
