The U.S. Conference of Mayors, at their annual meeting in Boston, adopted unanimously a resolution endorsing America's model building energy code, the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). The resolution, which passed on June 11, 2018, was offered by Mayor Buddy Dyer of Orlando, Fla., the vice chairman of the USCoM's Energy Committee. The resolution notes that "actions by local government and businesses are already a significant driver of renewable energy growth and can put the country on track to meet its commitment to the Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change." Read the resolution in full here
