Reno You Nailed It.
It's no longer about Fire and Safety, it's about Lawyers, politicians, and lobbyists making money. And collecting fees for local jurisdictions. Just like they claim that "Red Light Cameras" are for our safety. It's really All about revenue. Another layer of overhead to pay people who don't produce, but live off of those that do.

Haven't posted here in ages, but really felt the need on this one. I'm in CT, and we are STILL on the 2005... Supposedly to accept the 2011 in the Winter of 2013.

Don't get me started again, but I still think that TR receptacles should not be required in all houses. What ever happened to parents being responsible for their own children's welfare?
