Uh, yeah, we have building codes. From reading some of the posts on this forum it seems there are some who think we are all knuckle-dragging cretins, with wreaths instead of family trees! LOL! That's only part of the state.

Are you serious? Texas doesn't have building codes????
Kind of, sort of, in a way. In TX only CITIES can enforce building codes. So if you're outside a city limits, like much of "greater" Houston is, no building codes. The Dallas/Ft. Worth, Austin and San Antonio metro areas don't have as much of this as generally where one city ends another one begins.

A lot of funny stuff down here. In the subdivision I lived in outside of Houston the majority of my neighbors were all "right thinking" Republicans who unfortunately over the years became true believers.

Then a concrete company decided to build a batch plant about 1/3 mile from the subdivision and the elementary and middle schools! Then it was "OMG we've gotta do something!" So they collected money to pay a lawyer to get the T exas N atural R esource C onseration C ommission (TNRCC-train wreck for short) to STOP THEM.

The problem is that TNRCC had (has??) no policy for DISALLOWING particulate emissions, they ONLY APPROVE them.

Naturally I gave no money to this fool's errand and constantly berated my neighbors for collecting money and hiring an attorney and deluding themselves, IIRC they collected a bit more than $10K.
