Letter: Contact state for fireworks law change
I could not agree more with Joyce Winner, who feels that 11 nights for fireworks are excessive. Three or four would seem very reasonable. I already contacted the city about this issue and was told that it is now state law, not local, that provides for this – and that cities are no longer able to legislate a shorter duration. As I’m sure we can all guess, there was a lobbying effort by the fireworks industry behind this. Please contact State Rep. Donna Schaibley at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 317-234-2993 to lend your support to her efforts to shorten the duration of fireworks.
