Proposed bill would allow bigger fireworks to be sold in Utah

SALT LAKE CITY — More explosive fireworks could be sold in Utah under a bill passed by the House.

Republican Rep. Jim Dunnigan of Taylorsville says House Bill 22 would reduce the number of people illegally bringing fireworks into Utah.

Utah retailers could sell multishot fireworks that give a better display.

The bill defines illegal fireworks, such as bottle rockets, mortars and cherry bombs.

In early July, agents from the State Bureau of Investigation conducted surveillance outside liquor and fireworks shops in Evanston, Wyo., then radioed to police to stop people on Interstate 80 entering Utah.

The operation was criticized by Evanston city officials and business owners. They contend customers were being harassed.
