It that a long time for local authorities (state or city) to adapt newer code books. Lots of locations are still using NEC 2011.
Any vintage NEC code book is not the law, until the local authorities make it a law.

Yeah, my county has just adapted the 2014 revision in the spring of 2016. I've seen a redline version of the PDF which has changes for 2014, so that's what I'll try to get.

Just once, please. Not like Al Capone's "Vote early and vote often"...  ;)

Ha!  Not sure that the idea was Capone's... but point taken.

BTW... ex-IEW Local 134 here... so I'm at least qualified for this conversation.

It does seem to be a Chicago thing....

Source of "Vote Early and Often"

The cynical phrases "Vote early -- and often" and "Vote early -- and vote often" are variously attributed to three different Chicagoans: Al Capone, the famous gangster; Richard J. Daley, mayor from 1955 to 1976; and William Hale Thompson, mayor from 1915-1923 and 1931-1935. All three were notorious for their corruption and their manipulation of the democratic process. It is most likely that Thompson invented the phrase, and Capone and Daley later repeated it.

I've voted as a "participant" because I want to be more knowledgeble, but I'm probably better suited to casual observer status, due to lack of formal training. Thanks to all the folks who are will to share their time and knowledge with us lounge-level providers.

I would be in. My copy of the NEC is the 2008.

I usually use Tapatalk so I don't see pills.

FYI: The PDF or Softcover version of the code is around $95 American, which might be a bit pricey for casual followers. There is a free version of NEC 70 on the NFPA site that makes you create and log in with a free account, but I assume there will be much spam generated. I'm calling my contact at the NFPA to see if there's any grants or discounts available for this discussion group. One thing we cannot do is post or distribute "free" PDF's of the code since that's a direct copyright violation.

Thank you for mentioning this, Mike.

I went to the NFPA site and created an account.  I saw reference there to free access as well.  Have yet to locate a link / source file however. 

Just an FYI for those interested.
