Fireworks generate revenue for local, state governments

LANSING (WTVB) - The author of Michigan’s revised fireworks law says he doesn’t like fireworks, but he likes the revenue it generates for state and local governments. Democratic House Rep. Harold Haugh tells MIRS news has no immediate plans to change the legislation approved in 2011. The bill ignited a barrage of criticism from local municipalities who complained they spent most of the month of June that year dealing with noise complaints from homeowners.  The legislation was subsequently tweaked to allow local municipalities to limit the days and the hours that fireworks can be used. Fireworks dealers says sales have declined since the first year and police say they are having fewer problems before and after the holidays.
