Assemblywoman Melissa A. Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore, announced Wednesday her bill, Assembly Bill 2192, to streamline the process of approving building permits passed out of the Assembly Local Government Committee.
“In a district like mine, it is important that we get people back to work and continue the development of our region,” Melendez said. “This bill expedites that process.”
AB 2192 allows a local building department to permit architects to contract with other architects to review their plans for compliance with the building code in lieu of a building department plan review.
“My bill makes it possible for residential construction projects to begin faster,” commented Melendez. “More construction jobs and efficient housing production is good news for residents of the Inland Empire.”
Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez represents the 67th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Lake Elsinore, Canyon Lake, Murrieta, Menifee, Wildomar and a portion of Hemet. It also includes the Riverside County unincorporated areas of Lake Mathews, Good Hope, Nuevo, and Winchester.
