    They now say that only you personally are required to AFCI protect every circuit you touch for the rest of your life. The rest of us are exempt....

      One of the biggest is the rework of 250.122....if it makes it through the process. In the first revision, the size of the EGC is based on the size of the ungrounded conductor and not on the rating of the overcurrent protective device. The eliminates the troublesome 250.122(B) rule.

        Do you really believe they will get me to comply?
        Our comedian shamelessly joked about a blackout. Talk about dark humor.

          Well, if it goes through- I will order a cake, filet-mignonette, shrimp, $$$ wine, invite a few friends over and throw myself a huge party. I've been waiting for that change for a long time. Makes a lot more sense then all the individual rules thrown about.
