Fireworks bill fails to advance

SB 5914 failed to move out of committee on Thursday and is likely dead. Cities strongly opposed this preemption over local public safety authority. Cities and counties had a strong showing at the hearing on March 18, and AWC would like to thank the Fire Marshalls from Bothell, Olympia, Longview, Kirkland, Vancouver, and Clark County as well as city attorneys from Bothell and Vancouver for participating in the hearing and expressing our opposition to the bill.
