Hoadley: Fireworks Law Ready to be Tweaked
Michigan Representative Jon Hoadley (D-Kalamazoo) tells WBCK that fireworks rules in Michigan are ready to be revised, five years after a total fireworks ban was lifted in the state.
Hoadley said he has heard a chorus of complaints - louder than ever since the ban was lifted in 2011 - after this Independence Day holiday celebrating.
Hoadley points to House Bill 4726, which seeks to amend the fireworks laws in the state and has been stuck in a review committee with no action. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Henry Yanez (D-Sterling Heights) and co-sponsored by several others including Hoadley, clarifies types of fireworks, as well as where and when they could be used.
