Construction Codes Advisory Council
Active dates:1998 - 2003; 2007 -
Function: The council shall review laws, codes, rules, standards, and licensing requirements relating to building construction
The 2008 legislative session reestablished the Construction Codes Advisory Council (CCAC) to review laws, codes, rules, standards, and licensing requirements relating to building construction. (From the Council's website 6/8/09; there seems to be a discrepancy as to whether it was in 2007 or 2008 that the Council was reestablished.)
The Construction Codes Advisory Council was reviewed by the Legislative Commission on Planning and Fiscal Policy (LCPFP) in 2013 as part of their biennial duty required by Minn. Stat. 3.885 Subd. 11. The LCPFP's 2013 Recommendations called for keeping the council.

(1) the commissioner or the commissioner's designee representing the department's Construction Codes and Licensing Division;
