Hello from index.php

Louisiana is currently reviewing the 2021 IBC for adoption. Note LA1: Weakens IBC flood resistance in Section 1612.4 by deleting referenced ASCE 24-14 freeboard requirements and Table 1-1, Flood Design Class of Buildings and Structures. Note: State deletes Ch. 1 without substitution, leaving many NFIP-necessary flood provisions to be picked up at the local level, including: criteria for variance in FHA (Sec. 104.10.1) and inspection/documentation of lowest floor elevation in FHA (Sec. 107.2.5, 107.5, 110.3.3, 110.10.1) (12/1/21)
