The American Lumber Standards Committee Board of Review (ALSC Board) met yesterday in Washington, DC, to hear testimony regarding the Southern Pine Inspection Bureau's (SPIB) recommendations to change design values for Southern Pine. Immediately after the hearing, the ALSC Board went into an Executive Session to determine their ruling.
NOTE: As of Friday afternoon, ALSC had not released any information indicating when the ALSC Board will issue a ruling. In decisions such as these, one lumber industry expert indicated it is not unusual for the Board to take up to a few weeks to reach a decision, particularly given the scope and amount of information involved in this case. We will make everyone aware of their ruling as soon as it is made public.
