Fireworks This Summer In Minnesota?
The Minnesota Senate passed a fireworks bill for the state yesterday in a 41-22 vote that would make airborne fireworks legal in the state. Currently only sparklers and low explosive toys are allowed in Minnesota.
Supporters of the bill state that Minnesotans already have a large influence of fireworks from Wisconsin and the Dakotas, so allowing fireworks in state borders would allow the state to generate money from sales taxes.
The ne-sayers such as law enforcement and fire departments are opposed to the idea, with the logic that it will cause more injuries and property damage.
The next step now is the House of course, and If approved the bill would take effect on June 1.
