LANSING (WWJ) – Local police say there was not a big increase in injuries this year, despite Michigan’s new fireworks law.

Reports are that the number of injuries did not go up dramatically – as a result of the Michigan’s new fireworks law – but revenues for the state did go up and the sponsor is pleased with that:

“It far exceeded expectations … I’ve talked to one of the suppliers who had $20 million in inventory and sold out before the Fourth of July,” said Rep. Harold Haugh. “What we need to look at consumer usage and the confusion that rests with local municipalities on what they could or couldn’t enforce.”

Haugh (D-Roseville) says he needs to revisit portions of the new law that may be confusing.

Bottle rockets, aerial cakes, Roman candles, firecrackers all can be sold and enjoyed legally after lawmakers and Gov. Rick Snyder erased the ban late last year.
