MIACCA Submits public comment on Code of Conduct rules change
An updated version of Code of Conduct rules was approved for all utilities and alternative electric suppliers (AESs) after comments from a public hearing were incorporated (Case No. U-18361). The new rules are intended to prevent cross-subsidization, preferential treatment, and information sharing between a utility’s regulated and unregulated services and programs. They also allow utilities to offer “value-added programs and services” to customers. The rules will be submitted to the Legislative Service Bureau and the Office of Regulatory Reinvention for their formal approvals.
MIACCA asks Michigan Court of Appeals to apply the Michigan Residential Code (MRC) uniformly throughout the State.
On May 31, 2018, attorneys James Bruinsma and Kathleen Bruinsma of McShane & Bowie P.L.C., filed a great brief on behalf of MIACCA pointing out that the Single State Construction Code Act (SSCCA) requires that the MRC must be applied uniformly throughout the state and that local inspectors are not authorized to add or go beyond the code. MIACCA’s brief also pointed out that SSCCA requires that both the local construction board of appeals and the Construction Code Commission must timely hear all appeals within 30 days, and that the Bureau of Construction Codes cannot delay an appeal with administrative procedures.
