Washington, D.C. – The International Code Council hires KP Public Affairs, a leading advocacy, lobbying and public affairs firm based in Sacramento, California, to represent the interests of the association, its members and key stakeholders in the state.

KP is an experienced firm with decades of advocacy and communications talent on staff. The firm represents regional governments, private developers, home builders, utilities, construction companies and many others. With a long-standing presence in California’s Capitol and a thorough knowledge of the building community, KP will work closely with the Code Council on a range of building safety related issues.

“The Code Council has long been active in California on the state and local levels, supporting our members and chapters,” said Sara Yerkes, Senior Vice President of Government Relations for the Code Council. “We’re looking forward to expanding our efforts to support modern building codes and code compliance in the state as well as building strong coalitions across the design and construction industries.”
