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.

The bill remains in the Michigan House Regulatory Reform Committee, chaired by Rep. Ray Franz (R-Onekama).
