Gov. OKs statewide fireworks sales expansion

AP Wire • Jul 21, 2015 at 11:16 AM

The legislation will make it legal to sell and use more powerful explosives such as firecrackers and some consumer-grade devices that shoot into the air, such as bottle rockets and Roman candles.

Snyder signed the bill Tuesday afternoon and is expected to officially file it with the Office of the Great Seal today. The bill takes effect Jan. 1, which should give businesses time to ramp up by the summer fireworks season.

The fireworks legislation is House Bill 4293 and Senate Bill 194.
