Appeal hearings date change
As announced in the Notice of Appeal Hearings, the appeals for the 2019 Group B Code Cycle were split into five groups since a significant amount of crossover was identified between some of the appeals. After receiving a request by the affected appellants for the fourth and fifth appeal hearings – Leading Builders of America and the National Association of Home Builders – the Appeals Board approved the merger of the hearings originally scheduled on September 10 and 14. The resulting appeal hearing will take place on September 14, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. CT. The hearing will include the following appeal basis as noted in the Notice of Appeal Hearings:
- Impact of online voting (CP 28)
- Cost impact
- Voting guides
- Voter eligibility
- Validation process
The new deadline for written comments and participation for this hearing is Monday, August 31. Submit written comments and requests to participate to Mike Pfeiffer at email@example.com.
Note: This is the only change to the appeal hearings schedule. The hearings for federal preemption (August 31) and scope and intent (September 3) remain unchanged. Registration links for the view only YouTube live stream of the hearings are available here.
