The article focuses on questions being raised about the qualifications of Chris Knight, who has been appointed interim director of the Las Vegas Department of Building and Safety in Nevada. Knight has no certification from the International Code Council. City officials explained the appointment by citing the state law NRS 278.577, which requires certification of building department employees but with exemption. Attorney lobbyist for the construction industry James Wadhams elaborated the legal aspect of the appointment.
