1(1)  Each local government which is required to adopt a building code by s. 553.73 and which has a coastal building zone or some portion of a coastal zone within its territorial boundaries shall adopt, not later than January 1, 1987, as part of its building code, the requirements established in s. 161.55, and such requirements shall be enforced by the local enforcement agency as defined in s. 553.71.

(2)  Each local government shall provide evidence to the state land planning agency that it has adopted a building code pursuant to this section. Within 90 days after January 1, 1987, the state land planning agency shall submit to the Administration Commission a list of those local governments which have not submitted such evidence of adoption. The sole issue before the Administration Commission shall be whether or not to impose sanctions pursuant to 2s. 163.3184(8).

(3)  Nothing in ss. 161.52-161.58 shall be construed to limit or abrogate the right and power of the department to require permits or to adopt and enforce standards pursuant to s. 161.041 or s. 161.053 for construction seaward of the coastal construction control line that are as restrictive as, or more restrictive than, the requirements provided in s. 161.55 or the rights or powers of local governments to enact and enforce setback requirements or zoning or building codes that are as restrictive as, or more restrictive than, the requirements provided in s. 161.55.

(4)  To assist local governments in the implementation and enforcement of s. 161.55, the state land planning agency shall develop and maintain a biennial coastal building zone construction training program for the local enforcement agencies specified in subsection (1). The state land planning agency shall provide an initial training program not later than April 1, 1987, and on a recurring biennial basis shall provide a continuing education program beginning July 1, 1989. Registration fees, as determined appropriate by the state land planning agency, may be charged to defray the cost of the program if general revenue funds are not provided for this purpose. No later than December 1, 1986, the state land planning agency shall further develop a deemed-to-comply manual which contains, as determined appropriate by the state land planning agency, methods, materials, connections, applicability, and other associated information for use by the local enforcement agency in complying with subsection (1).
