I believe this is only in the city. You can use plastic for drain, vent, & waste in most suburbs

You can also just staple wires down and make buildings out of carboard in suburbs.
Hardly anything to envy.

I was driving in on 80 and 55 the other day. Holy moly there's alot of new really cheap housing just built out there. I said to the wife "what's that subdivision gonna look like in 4o years, the construction looks really cheap....?" Her answer was "what do you care, you'll be dead by then". So maybe there is something to building housing that is really cheap.

Depends on the 'burb. Here in Lombard, metallic (aka conduit) wiring is still required, as is metallic (copper) water plumbing.

That is the rule of thumb in most Cook and DuPage county suburbs. I believe county code requires EMT (conduit) and copper supply plumbing. Plastic pipe is fine for drain, vent, & waste. When you get out to Will County and beyond you can use romex and plastic boxes, which is the code for most of the rest of the country, outside major cities. We gotta keep our union laborers working here in the big city, however.

"One thing to get prepared for, they are only going to replace it with the same type of 100 year old technology, the clay pipe. Forget about replacing it with plastic or steel, you can't according to law. It's a union thing. "
This is bullshit. I'm sorry but I can't believe it.
Worst case they would require mission couplings to be used on transitions as many older cities do. Although sometimes it's easier and cheaper to fold in a couple tiles.
