    The following is from Dr. Elliot Eisenberg, Ph.D.

     

    The Friday File: To focus Congress on GDP growth, give members incentive pay. Pay them a base of $60,000 (median income) and incentive pay that rises with GDP. No bonus is paid until GDP growth hits 2%. Between 2%-3% they get a 30% bonus, from 3%-4% a 75% bonus, from 4%-5% a 200% bonus and from 5%-6% a 400% bonus. These incentives should see economic growth trump party purity.

    Good News On Sprinklers

     

    Special Note on Building Codes

    R.4321 – International Residential Building Code
    (Note: This is not a bill, but a regulation that will be promulgated).
    This week, the 2012 I-Codes were approved on second reading by the Senate. As submitted by LLR, the regulation includes numerous modifications as well as the removal of the mandate for residential fire sprinklers. Thanks to our HBASC Building Codes Committee and its Chairman, Andy Barber, the HBASC was able to make several modifications to the 2012 I-Codes. Sen. Shane Massey (R-Aiken) deserves a great deal of credit for safeguarding the rights of homeowners across the state and defending affordable housing for its citizens.

    Thanks to Mark and Matt for staying on top of this!

    This is very important news for Home Builders.  The above is an excerpt from the HBASC Legislative Newsletter that comes out every Friday during the Session.  If you would like to receive this report on a regular basis, please make sure that the HBA has your correct email address.

    SC Housing Hall of Fame to Induct Three New Members

    The South Carolina Housing Hall of Fame trustees have announced that Marc Ellis, John W. Uldrick and C. Dan Joyner (posthumous) will be inducted into the prestigious honor society for their work in and support of South Carolina’s home building industry. Each inductee, or their family, will be presented with the trademark medallion and plaque during a ceremony on September 20 at the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden in Columbia.

    “We couldn’t have asked for three better nominees than Marc Ellis, Johnny Uldrick or C. Dan Joyner because of their unwavering efforts to protect the home building industry and the American dream of homeownership,” said Kenneth E. Ormand, Jr., chairman of the S.C. Housing Hall of Fame Trustees. “The South Carolina home building industry has been fortunate to have these champions working for the benefit of our citizens.”

    Marc Ellis is a strong advocate of housing who has had a remarkable affect on the housing industry. Marc Ellis has been an active and vocal participant in every residential construction issue in his community of Hilton Head Island and across S.C. for more than 20 years. His innumerable hours of commitment to the housing industry should stand as a model to anyone who owes their livelihood to the construction industry.

    John (Johnny) Uldrick is renowned for his craftsmanship, but more importantly, his high standards are what all construction is measured by in the upstate region. Johnny has also willingly and proudly accepted the role of mentor to other builders and a leader to the Home Builders Association. The homeowners of S.C. will be better off for generations to come because of his contributions to the housing industry.

    C. Dan Joyner’s contributions to the housing industry are varied and stem from his success in building one of the largest real estate brokerage firms in the U.S. He once listed one of his greatest accomplishments as, “finding homes for people.” However, his business success is not the story that defines C. Dan Joyner. How he gave back to his community and industry is what best reflects C. Dan Joyner. He was a driving force to support efforts to boost Greenville from a sleepy textile town into one of the “most livable” communities in America.

    “Without the concern and actions of these three personalities, our industry would not have been able to weather the recent economic storm and would not have been able to maintain the level of strength which it has today,” said Ormand. “I congratulate the accomplishments of Messrs. Ellis, Uldrick and Joyner and I welcome them into the S.C. Housing Hall of Fame.” Messers. Ellis and Uldrick and the family of Mr. Joyner will accept their nominations into the S.C. Housing Hall of Fame on Thursday, September 20 at the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden in Columbia. Tickets for this event are on sale now at the Home Builders Association of South Carolina. For more information, call 803-771-7408 or visit www.hbaofsc.com.

    About the South Carolina Housing Hall of Fame
    Established in 1995, the South Carolina Housing Hall of Fame has inducted 65 outstanding individuals from all over the state. Displayed proudly in the office of the Home Builders Association of South Carolina, the South Carolina Housing Hall of Fame honors individuals who have made a lasting contribution to the housing industry and to their communities, as well as the state of South Carolina and the nation, through their work in building and development, public service and housing-related areas such as education, architecture and planning.
