Minnesota politicians, businesses hopeful for new firework bill
Wednesday, February 26, 2020
A bill to legalize audible and aerial fireworks in Minnesota has started off with a “bang” in this year’s legislative session.
Gov. Tim Walz recently voiced support for the bill, which would expand the types of fireworks people over 18 years old can buy in the state, including bottle rockets and Roman candles. Some people say legalizing this type of pyrotechnics will bring revenue back to the state, while others are concerned about increases in injuries and fire hazards.
