(Frankfort, Ky.) - Fireworks could become legal in Kentucky under a bill passed by the state House.
Rep. Johnny Bell (D-Glasgow) sponsored House Bill 333, which would make legal the sale and use of fireworks that shoot into the air or explode.
Since many folks already shoot off fireworks in violation of the law, Bell figured the state might as well make it legal.
The bill now goes to the Senate, where prospects are uncertain according to the Louisville Courier Journal.
Fireworks vendors would have to pay $250 for a seasonal license and $500 for ayear-round license. They would also be required to notify the Kentucky Fire Marshal where they would be selling fireworks.
