Senate Roll Call 662 on
2011 House Bill 4293: Revise fireworks regulations

To establish a comprehensive regulatory regime for the sale, distribution and use of currently-illegal "consumer fireworks" including firecrackers, bottle rockets, aerial spinners, Roman candles, etc. (“APA standard 87-1” fireworks). The bill proposes a $1,000 permit fee for sellers, $600 for temporary location "tent" sellers. It also would impose a mandate for sellers to carry a $10 million insurance policy, and a 6 percent tax ("fireworks safety fee") in addition to the usual 6 percent sales tax. Local governments could prohibit residents from using fireworks (except during national holiday periods), but could not ban fireworks sellers who meet the bill's conditions.
