STATEWIDE BUILDING CODES
SB 2368 (Sen. Koehler, D-Peoria Heights/Rep. Johnson, D-East Moline) passed both chambers of the General Assembly and amends the Capital Development Board Act (20 ILCS 3105/1 et seq.). It requires that certain building code standards be adopted or followed effective January 1, 2025. The Act does not require municipalities or counties that do not currently have building codes to adopt building codes, but it does require minimum construction standards in those communities. For municipalities and counties that have adopted building codes, the Act requires that those codes meet certain requirements. Having a municipal or county zoning ordinance is separate from having a municipal or county building code.
