Michigan lawmakers considering new limits on fireworks

By  | 

LANSING (WJRT) (12/7/2018) - Lawmakers are considering a bill that would limit when people could shoot off fireworks in Michigan.

A law passed in 2012 allows people to shoot off commercial grade fireworks in their neighborhoods. That led to complaints about all night shows.

The law was tweaked limiting the displays to 30 days a year around national holidays.

A new proposal that passed the State House would reduce the number to 12 days a year. It would also let communities set rules that require people to stop setting them off at 11:30 p.m.

Fireworks currently are allowed until 1 a.m. on the nights before, during and after a federal holiday.
