   56  structure, or the fee owner’s contractor upon written
   57  authorization from the fee owner, may choose to use a private
   58  provider to provide building code inspection services with
   59  regard to such building or structure and may make payment

   78  based on a fee owner or contractor hiring a private provider to
   79  perform plans reviews and building inspections in lieu of the
   80  local building official, and reduce the permit fees accordingly.
   81         Section 5. Paragraph (d) of subsection (7) of section
   82  553.80, Florida Statutes, is amended to read:
   83         553.80 Enforcement.—

   87  and any fines or investment earnings related to the fees, shall
   88  be used solely for carrying out the local government’s
   89  responsibilities in enforcing the Florida Building Code. When
   90  providing a schedule of reasonable fees, the total estimated
   91  annual revenue derived from fees, and the fines and investment
   92  earnings related to the fees, may not exceed the total estimated
   93  annual costs of allowable activities. Any unexpended balances
   94  shall be carried forward to future years for allowable
   95  activities or shall be refunded at the discretion of the local
   96  government. The basis for a fee structure for allowable
   97  activities shall relate to the level of service provided by the

  104  time of application for a permit, the payment of any additional
  105  fees, charges, or expenses associated with:
  106         1. Providing proof of licensure pursuant to chapter 489;
  107         2. Recording or filing a license issued pursuant to this
  108  chapter; or

  142         (d) A proposal may be modified by the commission based on
  143  public testimony and evidence from a public hearing held in
  144  accordance with chapter 120.
  146  The commission shall incorporate within sections of the Florida
  147  Building Code provisions that which address regional and local
  148  concerns and variations. The commission shall make every effort
  149  to minimize conflicts between the Florida Building Code, the
  150  Florida Fire Prevention Code, and the Life Safety Code.
  151         (4)
  152         (d) A technical amendment to the Florida Building Code
  153  related to water conservation practices or design criteria

  157  use of water resources as provided in s. 373.621. However, any
  158  such technical amendment carried forward into the next edition
  159  of the code pursuant to this paragraph is subject to review or
  160  modification as provided in this part.

  173  any updates to such codes or any other code necessary to
  174  maintain eligibility for federal funding and discounts from the
  175  National Flood Insurance Program, the Federal Emergency
  176  Management Agency, and the United States Department of Housing

  194  criteria adopted from these referenced by the codes shall be
  195  incorporated by reference to the specific provisions adopted. If
  196  a referenced standard or criterion requires amplification or
  197  modification to be appropriate for use in this state, only the
  198  amplification or modification shall be set forth in the Florida
  199  Building Code. The commission may approve technical amendments
  200  to the updated Florida Building Code after the amendments have

  202  (d). Amendments that to the foundation codes which are adopted
  203  in accordance with this subsection shall be clearly marked in
  204  printed versions of the Florida Building Code so that the fact
  205  that the provisions are Florida-specific amendments to the
  206  foundation codes is readily apparent.
  207         (d) The commission shall further consider the commission’s
  208  own interpretations, declaratory statements, appellate
  209  decisions, and approved statewide and local technical amendments
  210  and shall incorporate such interpretations, statements,
  211  decisions, and amendments into the updated Florida Building Code
  212  only to the extent that they are needed to modify the foundation
  213  codes to accommodate the specific needs of the state. A change
  214  made by an institute or standards organization to any standard
  215  or criterion that is adopted by reference in the Florida
  216  Building Code does not become effective statewide until it has
  217  been adopted by the commission. Furthermore, the edition of the
  218  Florida Building Code which is in effect on the date of
  219  application for any permit authorized by the code governs the
  220  permitted work for the life of the permit and any extension
  221  granted to the permit.
  222         (e) A rule updating the Florida Building Code in accordance
  223  with this subsection shall take effect no sooner than 6 months
  224  after publication of the updated code. Any amendment to the
  225  Florida Building Code which is adopted upon a finding by the
  226  commission that the amendment is necessary to protect the public
  227  from immediate threat of harm takes effect immediately.
  228         (f) Provisions of the Florida Building Code foundation
  229  codes, including those contained in referenced standards and
  230  criteria, relating to wind resistance or the prevention of water
  231  intrusion may not be modified to diminish those construction
  232  requirements; however, the commission may, subject to conditions
  233  in this subsection, modify the provisions to enhance those
  234  construction requirements.
  235         (g) Amendments or modifications to the foundation code
  236  pursuant to this subsection shall remain effective only until
  237  the effective date of a new edition of the Florida Building Code
  238  every third year. Amendments or modifications related to state
  239  agency regulations which are adopted and integrated into an
  240  edition of the Florida Building Code shall be carried forward
  241  into the next edition of the code, subject to modification as
  242  provided in this part. Amendments or modifications related to
  243  the wind-resistance design of buildings and structures within
  244  the high-velocity hurricane zone of Miami-Dade and Broward
  245  Counties which are adopted to an edition of the Florida Building
  246  Code do not expire and shall be carried forward into the next
  247  edition of the code, subject to review or modification as
  248  provided in this part. If amendments that expire pursuant to
  249  this paragraph are resubmitted through the Florida Building
  250  commission code adoption process, the amendments must
  251  specifically address whether:
  252         1. The provisions contained in the proposed amendment are
  253  addressed in the applicable international code.
  254         2. The amendment demonstrates by evidence or data that the
  255  geographical jurisdiction of Florida exhibits a need to
  256  strengthen the foundation code beyond the needs or regional
  257  variations addressed by the foundation code, and why the
  258  proposed amendment applies to this state.
  259         3. The proposed amendment was submitted or attempted to be
  260  included in the foundation codes to avoid resubmission to the
  261  Florida Building Code amendment process.
  263  If the proposed amendment has been addressed in the
  264  international code in a substantially equivalent manner, the
  265  Florida Building commission may not include the proposed
  266  amendment in the foundation Code.
  267         (8) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (3) or
  268  subsection (7), the commission may address issues identified in
  269  this subsection by amending the code pursuant only to the rule
  270  adoption procedures contained in chapter 120. Provisions of
  271  Updates to the Florida Building Code, including provisions those
  272  contained in referenced standards and criteria which relate,
  273  relating to wind resistance or the prevention of water
  274  intrusion, may not be amended pursuant to this subsection to
  275  diminish those standards construction requirements; however, the
  276  commission may, subject to conditions in this subsection, amend
  277  the Florida Building Code the provisions to enhance such
  278  standards those construction requirements. Following the
  279  approval of any amendments to the Florida Building Code by the
  280  commission and publication of the amendments on the commission’s
  281  website, authorities having jurisdiction to enforce the Florida
  282  Building Code may enforce the amendments. The commission may
  283  approve amendments that are needed to address:
  284         (a) Conflicts within the updated code;
  285         (b) Conflicts between the updated code and the Florida Fire
  286  Prevention Code adopted pursuant to chapter 633;
  287         (c) Unintended results from the integration of previously
  288  adopted Florida-specific amendments with the model code;
  289         (d) Equivalency of standards;
  290         (e) Changes to or inconsistencies with federal or state
  291  law; or
  292         (f) Adoption of an updated edition of the National
  293  Electrical Code if the commission finds that delay of
  294  implementing the updated edition causes undue hardship to
  295  stakeholders or otherwise threatens the public health, safety,
  296  and welfare.
  297         (9)(a) The commission may approve technical amendments to
  298  the Florida Building Code once each year for statewide or
  299  regional application upon a finding that the amendment:
  300         1. Is needed in order to accommodate the specific needs of
  301  this state.
  302         2. Has a reasonable and substantial connection with the
  303  health, safety, and welfare of the general public.
  304         3. Strengthens or improves the Florida Building Code, or in
  305  the case of innovation or new technology, will provide
  306  equivalent or better products or methods or systems of
  307  construction.
  308         4. Does not discriminate against materials, products,
  309  methods, or systems of construction of demonstrated
  310  capabilities.
  311         5. Does not degrade the effectiveness of the Florida
  312  Building Code.
  314  The Florida Building Commission may approve technical amendments
  315  to the code once each year to incorporate into the Florida
  316  Building Code its own interpretations of the code which are
  317  embodied in its opinions, final orders, declaratory statements,
  318  and interpretations of hearing officer panels under s.
  319  553.775(3)(c), but only to the extent that the incorporation of
  320  interpretations is needed to modify the code foundation codes to
  321  accommodate the specific needs of this state. Amendments
  322  approved under this paragraph shall be adopted by rule after the
  323  amendments have been subjected to subsection (3).
  324         (b) A proposed amendment must include a fiscal impact
  325  statement that documents the costs and benefits of the proposed
  326  amendment. Criteria for the fiscal impact statement shall be
  327  established by rule by the commission and shall include the
  328  impact to local government relative to enforcement, the impact
  329  to property and building owners, and the impact to industry,
  330  relative to the cost of compliance. The amendment must
  331  demonstrate by evidence or data that the state’s geographical
  332  jurisdiction exhibits a need to strengthen the foundation code
  333  beyond the needs or regional variations addressed by the
  334  foundation code and why the proposed amendment applies to this
  335  state.
  336         (20) The Florida Building Commission may not:
  337         (a) Adopt the 2016 version of the American Society of
  338  Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers Standard
  340         (b) Adopt any provision that requires a door located in the
  341  opening between a garage and a single-family residence to be
  342  equipped with a self-closing device.
  343         Section 7. Subsection (2) of section 553.76, Florida
  344  Statutes, is amended to read:
  345         553.76 General powers of the commission.—The commission is
  346  authorized to:
  347         (2) Issue memoranda of procedure for its internal
  348  management and control. The commission may adopt rules related
  349  to its consensus-based decisionmaking process, including, but
  350  not limited to, super majority voting requirements for
  351  commission actions relating to the adoption of the Florida
  352  Building Code or amendments to the code. However, the commission
  353  must adopt the Florida Building Code, and amendments thereto, by
  354  at least a two-thirds vote of the members present at a meeting.
  355         Section 8. Section 553.9081, Florida Statutes, is created
  356  to read:
  357         553.9081Florida Building Code; required amendments.—The
  358  Florida Building Commission shall amend the Florida Building
  359  Code-Energy Conservation to:
  360         (1)(a)Eliminate duplicative commissioning reporting
  361  requirements for HVAC and electrical systems; and
  362         (b)Authorize commissioning reports to be provided by a
  363  licensed design professional, electrical engineer, or mechanical
  364  engineer.
  365         (2)Prohibit the adoption of American Society of Heating,
  366  Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers Standard
  368         Section 9. Subsection (8) of section 633.208, Florida
  369  Statutes, is amended to read:
  370         633.208 Minimum firesafety standards.—
  371         (8)(a) The provisions of the Life Safety Code, as contained
  372  in the Florida Fire Prevention Code, do not apply to one-family
  373  and two-family dwellings. However, fire sprinkler protection may
  374  be permitted by local government in lieu of other fire
  375  protection-related development requirements for such structures.
  376  While local governments may adopt fire sprinkler requirements
  377  for one-family one- and two-family dwellings under this
  378  subsection, it is the intent of the Legislature that the
  379  economic consequences of the fire sprinkler mandate on home
  380  owners be studied before the enactment of such a requirement.
  381  After the effective date of this act, any local government that
  382  desires to adopt a fire sprinkler requirement on one-family one-
  383  or two-family dwellings must prepare an economic cost and
  384  benefit report that analyzes the application of fire sprinklers
  385  to one-family one- or two-family dwellings or any proposed
  386  residential subdivision. The report must consider the tradeoffs
  387  and specific cost savings and benefits of fire sprinklers for
  388  future owners of property. The report must include an assessment
  389  of the cost savings from any reduced or eliminated impact fees
  390  if applicable, the reduction in special fire district tax,
  391  insurance fees, and other taxes or fees imposed, and the waiver
  392  of certain infrastructure requirements including the reduction
  393  of roadway widths, the reduction of water line sizes, increased
  394  fire hydrant spacing, increased dead-end roadway length, and a
  395  reduction in cul-de-sac sizes relative to the costs from fire
  396  sprinkling. A failure to prepare an economic report shall result
  397  in the invalidation of the fire sprinkler requirement to any
  398  one-family one- or two-family dwelling or any proposed
  399  subdivision. In addition, a local jurisdiction or utility may
  400  not charge any additional fee, above what is charged to a non
  401  fire sprinklered dwelling, on the basis that a one-family one-
  402  or two-family dwelling unit is protected by a fire sprinkler
  403  system.
  404         (b)1.A county, municipality, special taxing district,
  405  public utility, or private utility may not require an impact fee
  406  or payment for a separate water connection for a one-family or
  407  two-family dwelling fire sprinkler system if the capacity
  408  required is hydraulically available at the property line. The
  409  accountholder of the one-family or two-family dwelling must
  410  notify the county, municipality, special district, public
  411  utility, or private utility of the installation of the separate
  412  water connection in the applicable permit. The separate water
  413  connection may only be used for one-family or two-family
  414  dwelling fire sprinkler systems and if used for other purposes,
  415  full base and volume charges may be applied.
  416         2.A county, municipality, special district, public
  417  utility, or private utility may not charge a water or sewer rate
  418  to a one-family or two-family dwelling that requires a larger
  419  water meter solely due to the installation of fire sprinklers
  420  above that which is charged to a one-family and two-family
  421  dwelling with a base meter. If the installation of fire
  422  sprinklers in a one-family or two-family dwelling requires the
  423  installation of a larger water meter, only the difference in
  424  actual cost between the base water meter and the larger water
  425  meter may be charged by the water utility provider.
  426         Section 10. A local government may not require an owner of
  427  a residence to obtain a permit to paint such residence,
  428  regardless of whether the residence is owned by a limited
  429  liability company.
  430         Section 11. The Department of Education, in conjunction
  431  with the Department of Economic Opportunity, shall develop a

  434  Department of Education shall provide the plan to the
  435  Construction Industry Workforce Task Force on or before July 1,
  436  2018.

  438  submit a plan to the Construction Industry Workforce Taskforce
  439  of the potential opportunities for training programs to
  440  implement the recommendations of the Construction Industry
  441  Workforce Taskforce Report dated January 20, 2017, using
  442  existing federal funds awarded to the corporation and using the
  443  previous statewide Florida ReBuilds program as an implementation
  444  model for such programs. CareerSource Florida, Inc., shall
  445  provide the plan to the Construction Industry Workforce
  446  Taskforce on or before July 1, 2018.
  447         Section 13. The Florida Building Commission shall adopt an
  448  amendment to the Florida Building Code-Residential, relating to
  449  Door Components, to provide that, relating to substitution of
  450  door components, such components must either:
  451         (1)Comply with ANSI/WMA 100; or
  452         (2)Be evaluated by an approved product evaluation entity,
  453  certification agency, testing laboratory, or engineer and may be
  454  interchangeable in exterior door assemblies if the components
  455  provide equal or greater structural performance as demonstrated
  456  by accepted engineering practices.
  457         Section 14. Present subsection (5) of section 489.516,
  458  Florida Statutes, is renumbered as subsection (6), and a new
  459  subsection (5) is added to that section, to read:

  465  within the scope of his or her license or from subcontracting to
  466  other licensed contractors any remaining work that is part of
  467  the project contracted.
