This is the right thing to do. The codes that richardson had put in place increased the cost of a house by fifteen percent when houses are already not affordable. Gov. Martinez is doing the right thing by repealing these codes and making us the same as every other state in the nation. I applaud her and the CIC commission for taking a stand and stopping this nonsense.

The enviornmentalists said it was bad "politics" to repeal these rules. How about bad for the economy? Bad for individuals trying to buy a home. The only thing "bad" about repealing this nonsence is that it helps to thwart the liberal agenda of more government control.

There's alot of "mays" and coulds", sounds like they really didn't research it really well. Remember the Sun MAY not rise tomorrow, or a COULD win the lottery tomorrow doesn't make it so. I'll bet I'll see the Sun tomorrow and won't be any richer.

When the Sun goes supernova, you'll only have 8 minutes to spend your riches.

And Richardson had no "big business" backing another regulated business? Include all the "retooling" costs, regulatory agencies, cost to the consumer and industries supplying the "green" building materials and you have an idea of what it means when you hear the phrase, "the more things change, the more they remain the same."
