Fireworks Bill Approved by House; Ohio AAP Continues Work to Oppose

The Ohio House of Representatives today (October 11, 2017) voted to approve Ohio HB 226. This bill would legalize the sale of consumer grade fireworks, including bottle rockets, firecrackers and missiles, with only minimal safety restrictions in place.

The Ohio AAP continues to oppose to this legislation and the danger these fireworks pose to Ohio children. We will continue opposition as it moves to the Ohio Senate for consideration.
