BOSTON - Local Fire Officals across the state are arguing that legalizing the sale of fireworks will lead to an increased number of fires and personal injuries. Fireworks are currently a billion dollar buisness in 46 other states.
The bill will give each city or town the option to issue permits for the sale and use of fireworks.
Proponents of the bill state the added $2 Million generated in tax revenue by legalizing them. They also show to the statistics of personal injuries decreasing as more state legalized their use.
