Some of you Florida guys may be interested in this. There is a bill going through the State Senate as we speak that will change when, how, and what building codes will be adopted by the state. Here is the exact wording of the most pertinent section:
The commission, by rule adopted pursuant to ss. 120.536(1) and 120.54, shall update the Florida Building Code every 3 years. When updating the Florida Building Code, the commission shall select the most current version of the International Building Code, the International Fuel Gas Code, the International Mechanical Code, the International Plumbing Code, the International Residential Code, the International Code Council Electrical Code, all of which are adopted by the International Code Congress, to form the foundation codes of the updated Florida Building Code, if the version has been adopted by the International Code Congress and made available to the public at least 6 months prior to its selection by the commission.
The key issues here are the adoption of the IRC and the IEC. This means dwellings with services under 400-amperes must meet the provisions of the IRC and not the NEC. Plus, the IEC has some pretty wild requirements that must be met like provisions for existing electrical systems
