This bill would grant local governments greater flexibility and authority over how to regulate the usage of fireworks through local ordinance. Under current law, local governments can only regulate the usage of fireworks through noise ordiances during set time periods of permissable daily usage, excluding designated holidays where fireworks are allowed.
