    Also no license required for J-man or apprentice.

    The CA data is a behind as well, we finally adopted 2014 code last year.

    The NFPA's Code Adoption Map is kept more current if that's all you want to know.

    The map is sorta correct for MD. While the state adopts a year/version, each jurisdiction gets to decide whether to follow or independently use another. Local amendments also.

    More rules and restrictions = less freedom.

    Unfettered freedom ends where public health and safety begin. As a matter of principle. It may be well or poorly implemented, but imperfect execution does not negate the principle.

    Only less freedom from the government. Rules and restrictions also provide more freedom from large unscrupulous businesses. I owe my soul to the company store and all....

    And now folks we return you back to our regularly scheduled program of the adoption of the NEC and licensing in various areas/states.

    Michigan did not adopt the part of the NEC that requires AFCI protection in one and two family dwellings, nor did we adopt any of Article 547, and we still got an A+ for this year.

    Really nothing in the formula to penalize for any 'amendments".

    If you have not adopted the 2017 NEC you will lose points in the 2017 report, if only change to scoring includes 2017 NEC.
