Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 1023 -- Elevator Safety Inspection

Sponsor:  Hohulin

Currently, elevator safety inspection codes may be equal to or
more stringent than standards set forth by certain professional
and safety organizations.  This bill requires that safety
inspection codes for elevators not be more stringent than the
specified standards.  A provision from the American Society of
Mechanical Engineers Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators is
added to the list of safety standards.  Any code that is adopted
based on the elevator safety inspection guidelines does not
apply to manual material lifts that are at least 50 years old
and used only for transporting materials.  Jasper County is also
exempted from codes adopted under the terms of the bill.
