what section gives permission to use splices in busbars as grounding electrode conductor? I've been all over 250, III, and 110.14 (B) comes close .

Welcome to the Forum

You need to go back to Art 250 again and read about grounding electrode conductor installation... (you can locate that in the index also)
(Your profile says student and we try not to answer directly but assist)
if you still can'f find it, come back.

Your key words are "grounding Electrode Conductor" . If you search in the index you will find the key words, then under that index you will find (installation 250.64). which is what Augie has quoted.

The more practice you do the better you will become in using the NEC and finding answers and articles/sections.
