2005 here in Florida. They are still arguing about 2008. Part of the problem is we are committed to adopting the code unaltered but they are slipping electrical rules into the building code and that subverts the whole process.

we're going '08 in dec for nfpa70, however those who have the need to interface it with 72 or 101 may be subject to the AHJ's best guess...
