Bill granting cities more authority over fireworks up for public hearing

HB 1702, sponsored by Rep. Luis Moscoso (D-Mountlake Terrace), adopts the National Fire Protection Association code for the regulation of manufacture and sale of fireworks. It authorizes a city or county to enact an ordinance that is more restrictive than state law as to the days and hours of legal sale of consumer fireworks, the days and hours of legal use of consumer fireworks, and the types of consumer fireworks that may be sold and used within the geographical boundary of a county or city. If the ordinance adopted is in conflict with state law, it will become null and void. HB 1702 is scheduled for public hearing Wednesday, February 2 at 8 am in the House Local Government Committee.
