An Act To Provide Options to Municipalities Concerning the Maine Uniform Building and Energy Code (2011)

The Legislature voted to weaken Maine’s Uniform Building and Energy Code (MUBEC) by exempting all towns with a population of less than 4,000 (400 of Maine’s 526 towns). MUBEC provides minimum quality, safety and energy-efficiency building standards. The exemption means that Mainers living in small towns will not be protected from construction of lower quality buildings that waste more energy, result in increased air pollution and cost more to heat.
