The greatest nosing projection shall not exceed the smallest nosing projection by more than three-eighths inch ( 9.5 mm) between two stories, including the nosing at the level of floors and landings. Beveling of nosing shall not exceed one-half inch ( 12.7 mm). Risers shall be vertical or sloped from the underside of the leading edge of the tread above at an angle not more than 30 ( 0.51 rad) degrees from the vertical. Open risers are permitted, provided that the opening between treads does not permit the passage of a four inch diameter (102 mm) sphere unless one of the following applies:

(a) A nosing is not required where the tread depth is a minimum of eleven inches (279 mm).

(b) The opening between adjacent treads is not limited on stairs with a total rise of thirty inches (762 mm) or less.

open risers are only allowed if the total rise is 30" or less.
If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got.
