Ive run my EMT conduit and placed my boxes in my workshop and placed the wires. All is good except... my inspector says I cant use conduit as ground and must run a bare or green conductor to each box/outlet... I dont want to get into rules/lawyering but what NEC line tells me (him) that conduit is OK for residential grounding. My city (Tucson) is on the 2017 NEC rev.
Am I reading this wrong?:
