Bottle rockets, aerial cakes, Roman candles, firecrackers all can be sold and enjoyed legally after lawmakers and Gov. Rick Snyder erased the ban. Some communities have taken steps to curb the use of such fireworks, but many aren't sure what they can do to avoid a conflict with state law.

The work group of four lawmakers will take a look at the law and get input from the state fire marshal.

Meanwhile, state Rep. Richard LeBlanc, D-Westland, said he wants legislation that would give local communities more power to regulate the sale and use of fireworks.
