Governor Signs House Bill to Expand Types of Fireworks Sold in State
Gov. Rick Snyder signed a bill late Tuesday that will allow the sale of certain consumer-grade fireworks in Michigan.
The governor signed House Bill 4293, sponsored by state Rep. Harold Haugh, and S.B. 194, sponsored by state Sen. Rick Jones, which will expand the types of fireworks that are legally allowed to be sold to consumers. He signed into law with the understanding that the Legislature will take up a related bill when it reconvenes in January to increase penalties that would help protect Michiganders from bad actors or “fly by night” operations.
H.B. 4293 is P.A. 256 and S.B. 194 is now P.A. 257.
