   17  more stringent than the code. A technical amendment is not
   18  subject to the requirements of subsection (4) and may not be
   19  rendered void when the code is updated if the amendment is
   20  adopted for the purpose of participating in the Community Rating
   21  System promulgated pursuant to 42 U.S.C. s. 4022, the amendment
   22  had already been adopted by local ordinance prior to July 1,
   23  2010, or the amendment requires a design flood elevation above
   24  the base flood elevation. Any amendment adopted pursuant to this
   25  subsection shall be transmitted to the commission within 30 days
   26  after being adopted. A municipality, county, or special district
   27  may not use preliminary maps issued by the Federal Emergency
   28  Management Agency for any law, ordinance, rule, or other measure
   29  that has the effect of imposing land use changes.
