Louder, more powerful fireworks will become legal in Michigan in plenty of time for the next Fourth of July through legislation signed Tuesday by Gov. Rick Snyder.

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.
