On or before December 1, 2026, the bill requires a board of county
commissioners or the governing body of a municipality to adopt a
building code, or amend an existing building code, to allow up to 5 stories
of a multifamily residential building to be served by a single exit. To
satisfy this requirement, a local government shall incorporate by reference
and adopt or adapt and adopt language from a portion of an existing
building code that allows a single exit to serve no more than 5 stories of
a group r-2 occupancy in the same building. If a local government so
requests, the department of local affairs shall provide technical assistance
to the local government in satisfying this requirement.
The bill also clarifies that the adoption or amendment of a building
code to satisfy the requirements of the bill does not qualify as adopting or
enforcing a building code for the purpose of determining whether a board
of county commissioners or the governing body of a municipality is
required to adopt an energy code.
