Iowa House OKs bill that would legalize more fireworks sales

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (AP) -  The Iowa House has approved a measure that would legalize the sales of more kinds of fireworks.

   The Des Moines Register says the measure passed on a 53-43 vote late Wednesday night. It now heads to the Senate, where a similar bill is being considered.

   Under the proposal, retailers could sell firecrackers, Roman candles and other fireworks. Currently the state allows sales only of sparklers and snakes. The bill would take effect Dec. 1, 2015, too late for July Fourth this year.
